Palmetto Battalion, Co. B
Florence, South Carolina

The 23rd SC Infantry is a group enthusiasts that portray Confederate soldiers of the Civil War. We learn from and enjoy the ways of life of an era gone by. We are also the hosts for The Skirmish Of Gamble's Hotel held at The Columns in Florence, South Carolina.

Cannons Before The Battle

Our scholarship has changed a little.  We'll accept a history major from any of the Low Country schools.  You'll need a short biography with your plans for the future, a brief essay about why history is important to you, and your most recent college transcript.  It's that simple and you could receive $1000 towards your tuition.  We've done this several times before.

I recently moved the website from the host that we've been using for many years.  THAT was a lot of work.  I haven't decided if I'm going to recreate the bulletin board.  These days, everyone is using Facebook, and it does pretty much what I was doing on the BB.

Look what I found! 
Take a look at the 2006 commercial we did.

Be sure to fast forward through the annoying beep at the beginning.

Since everyone uses social media these days, we created a Facebook group there too.
