The BATTLE OF CAMDEN event is a non-profit organization for advocacy, promotion and production of quality American Colonial and Revolutionary era living history events.

Our board consists of seasoned reenactors, tour guides, living history experts who have been increasingly dismayed by the lack of student, and adult, understanding of the birth of our Nation. In addition to hands on demonstrations of colonial and revolutionary war era lives of citizens and soldiers alike Liberty LiveSM provides a fundamental understanding of the Declaration of Independence and circumstances that lead to our break with Great Britain. Using the Constitution and particularly the Bill of Rights, our presentations are designed to integrate active student participation and make the message of Liberty relevant and easily applicable to today’s world on a community, national, and global scale. Inspiring students and adults to understand the ongoing American Experiment and the documents that provided foundational American ideals makes for better, more informed citizens.
