Some of the most significant American losses and victories of the Revolutionary War took place in South Carolina, where military leaders such as Nathanael GreeneJohn Laurens, and Francis Marion, also known as the Swamp Fox, used guerilla warfare in a dramatic fight for independence.

The state’s brand-new Liberty Trail invites travelers to uncover lesser-known sites and fascinating figures related to the period. Parks, battlefields, museums, and churches, along with landmarks in Charleston and the Francis Marion National Forest, bring to life key events and people in South Carolina’s 18th-century history that are often overshadowed by the war that unfolded further north.

Emmy Award–nominated PBS television host Darley Newman shares insights into historic destinations and how to get the most out of your exploration of the Liberty Trail. She offers tips on area guides and experts whose knowledge can deepen your experience, as well as recommendations for nearby attractions, great local food, drink, lodging, and hotspots along the way.
The evening features a sneak preview of her “Travels With Darley” episode that spotlights Charleston and the Liberty Trail, which premieres in the winter of 2022. Darley also offers a behind-the-scenes look at its filming as she welcomes some special guests featured in the series for a live conversation.
