SOUTH CAROLINA: Governor, Local Leaders Celebrate Revolutionary War History
CHARLESTON, S.C. — South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and Charleston Mayor William Cogswell came together to celebrate a new addition to a downtown greenspace.
Thirty-two bronze plates were unveiled Thursday in Marion Square to mark the path of the Revolutionary War Horn Work. Each plate laid along the historical area tells a piece of the Horn Work’s history since its build in 1758.
The Horn Work was a massive wall that spanned almost three city blocks in what is now downtown Charleston, according to a spokesperson for the Liberty Trail.
The trail is a driving route and tourism initiative that connects battlefields across the state. The trail includes the Horn Work in Marion Square, 30 national parks, South Carolina parks and local sites.
