The Battle of Aiken

February 21, 22 & 23, 2014

A special message to our visitors.

Welcome to our 19th Anniversary of the Reenactments at the Battle of Aiken.  It is our pleasure to have you join us this year.

On behalf of all of the volunteers, who worked  many long and hard hours, we would like to thank all of you that have come out to support this Living History Exhibit and Celebration of our Southern Heritage.  It is through the gracious and generous contributions of the many commercial and private sponsors and you, the public, that this event continues to be one of the biggest and best events in the State of South Carolina.

Our goal is to provide you with the most accurate and realistic portrayal of our Southern Heritage and the conditions and events that were a part of life in the difficult days of February 1865.  We invite you to visit the many Sutlers, Vendors, Camps, Exhibitors, and attractions that make up the Battle of Aiken.

We hope you will continue to support the many groups as we celebrate our Sesquicentennial of the War Between the States.

We hope you have enjoyed being here as much as we have enjoyed bringing it all together for you.

Your gracious host,

The Brigadier General Barnard E. Bee Camp #1575,

With support from the Sergeant Berry Benson Camp Number 1672, North Augusta, SC, Brigadier General Martin W. Gary Camp Number 1532, Edgefield, SC, and General Joe Wheeler Camp Number 1245, Aiken, SC of the Sons of Confederate Veterans
