Kershaw County Overview

In the state of South Carolina, Kershaw County was established in 1791, and named for an American Revolutionary War patriot, Brevard Kershaw. As of the 2016 census, the population was 64,097. Camden is both the county seat and the largest community. Kershaw County has a rich military history, producing several notable soldiers. The county produced six men who served in the American Civil War as Confederate generals: Joseph Brevard Kershaw, James Chesnut, James Cantey, Zachariah C. Deas, John Bordenave Villepigue, and John Doby Kennedy. Confederate soldier, and hero at the Battle of Fredericksburg, Richard Rowland Kirkland was also from Kershaw County, and served under General Kershaw. Union troops under Gen. William T. Sherman burned parts of Camden in February 1865. During World War I, two Kershaw County men were awarded the Medal of Honor in two separate actions while fighting in France in October 1918. The first was Richmond Hobson Hilton, awarded his medal for actions taking place on October 11, 1918, during which he lost an arm. The second was John Canty Villepigue on October 15, 1918, in an action that resulted in his death months later from injuries received. Villepigue was a descendant of General John Bordenave Villepigue mentioned above. Statesman and financier Bernard M. Baruch and labor leader Lane Kirkland were born in Kershaw County, as was Larry Doby, the first African-American baseball player in the American League. Former South Carolina Governor John C.
