Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society

The Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society, an outgrowth of the County Promotions Committee, is responsible for ten murals throughout Clarendon County. The theme is the American Revolution with an emphasis on General Francis Marion and his militia members. The Society members on occasion dress in period clothing and for the past three years they have gone into classrooms to make presentations on living in the eighteen century. The Society has sponsored three Francis Marion Symposiums. The Symposiums were attended by published authors, college history professors, senior military officers, teachers and highly read amateur historians as well as those just plain interested in the history of this area. The subject of all presentations is related to colonial life and the Revolutionary War.

The Murals Society partners with the Friends of Santee National Wildlife Refuge and the staff of the Refuge to annually hold a reenactment / encampment on the Refuge near the site of Fort Watson. The Visitors Center at the Santee National Wildlife Refuge will be the location for our presentations. On the lawn of the Visitors Center are markers concerning Marion and Fort Watson.
