Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution (SCAR) is an informal fellowship of people with an interest in the events, people, places, and ideas surrounding the American War of Independence. We organize conferences, roundtables, field trips, and archaeological expeditions to promote research and sharing of information and to promote scholarly debate on Revolutionary War topics. And we publish the on-line journal, Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution. We also facilitate the discovery, preservation, interpretation, and promotion of Revolutionary War historic sites on the ground.
The journal, both in print and on-line, was founded in September 2004 by David P. Reuwer and Charles B. Baxley.
A. Thee is no subscription to the journal, but if you will send Charles B. Baxley your email and snail mail addresses, we will notify you be email of the posting of an new edition as well as other relevant events. All past issues are free and on-line.
A. SCAR has no “members”, only people who have expressed an interest and are listed on our mailing list. SCAR is based on mutual friendship and is always seeking others with similar interest and a willingness to share and help others. Just attend, meet the group … we invite your participation.
A. Financial contributions are certainly welcomed. SCAR is not an IRC sec. 501(c)3 tax exempt organization nor is it’s publisher, Woodward Corporation; so any contributions to SCAR are not automatically tax deductible.
Southern Campaigns of the American Revolution (SCAR) started as a monthly newsletter, printed and distributed by mail. It was soon posted on-line. It was started by Revolutionary War enthusiasts David P. Reuwer and Charles B. Baxley in 2004. Over time SCAR evolved into publishing peer-reviewed and fully referenced scholarly articles on topics relevant to study of the Southern Campaigns.
A. Yes, we are always looking for original research and insightful commentary on the Southern Campaigns. We are publishing some new articles on SCAR‘s home page for your information and enjoyment and we also refer articles to our sister publications where more appropriate.
A. SCAR’s founders - David P. Reuwer and Charles B. Baxley - were also founders with others of the Southern Campaign Revolutionary War Roundtable. Though there are many who contribute time and efforts to SCAR‘s projects, the Southern Campaign Revolutionary War Roundtable is an independent informal group.
