Fraser’s 71st Highland Regiment from Scotland fought for the British Army in the American Revolution from 1776 through 1781. This group of Scotsmen took part in some of the largest well-known battles fought throughout the war, like the Capture of Savannah, the Battle of Camden, the Battle of Guilford’s Courthouse, and the Siege of Yorktown.

One member of this regiment lost his life on the battlefield in Camden and will be re-interred later that week. Come learn how this brave regiment fought to preserve the American colonies of the British Empire.

Bring your own bagged lunch and we will provide the learning!
