Hanging on the Edge of Freedom in support of Hanging Rock Battlefield
State President's Project

Gray Bobo, State President
Gina Bobo, Senior State President

In August 1780, Patriots attacked a British outpost. The Battle of Hanging Rock was described by Patriot General Sumter as “…a great victory, but it will scarcely even be heard of, as we are but a handful of raw militia...”

The S.C.S.C.A.R. State President’s Project, Hanging on the Edge of Freedom, supports developing the Hanging Rock Battlefield Park by providing wayside exhibits, leading efforts to clean up the grounds and existing graffiti, removing spray paint from a Hanging Rock Monument, sharing the stories of the men who fought the battle, and increasing the awareness of this battleground. 

Contributions to support Hanging on the Edge of Freedom may be made payable to SCSCAR and mailed to:

David Smith, Senior State Treasurer
4677 Cross Keys Highway,
Union, SC 29379
