Travel with OLLI at Clemson: 

2022 Revolutionary War Tour


Join OLLI at Clemson & Explore Up Close . . . 

as we discover intriguing Revolutionary sites and stories of South Carolina! 

March 20 – 24, 2022

Was the American Revolutionary War won in the South?  Was the nature of the “southern campaign” one of sieges, pitched battles, or hit-and-run skirmishes?  To what degree was South Carolina’s Revolutionary War a civil war?

If these questions intrigue you (. . . or if you’re simply up for an adventure), join a troop of like-minded folk from Clemson OLLI, to learn about the Revolutionary War in South Carolina – on location, from the Low Country to the Piedmont.

We’ll spend the better part of a week visiting key battle and strategic sites, related to how the war unfolded in a pivotal region. Gain familiarity with places, people, events; and learn perspectives from recognized authorities who will join us for segments of our tour. Each day will bring adventure, probing presentation and discussion, as well as rest and relaxation over good meals and comfortable accommodation. (And you’ll learn more about the geography and stories of the Palmetto State than you ever imagined.)
