Lost battle of Cuylers Plantation/Monteith Swamp recalled
Members of the Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp Davis Chaper 2073 took part in the ceremonies surrounding the unveiling of a historical marker commemorating the Battle of Cuyler’s Plantation and Monteith Swamp.

Despite intermittent rain, there was a good crowd on hand Saturday for the marker dedication, including War Between the States re-enactors in uniform and costume.

Camp Davis Sons of Confederate Veterans Chapter 2073 provided an honor guard and gun salute and held an encampment on the grounds. United Daughters of the Confederacy Effingham Hussars Chapter 2285 unveiled the marker and placed a laurel wreath.  

Historic Effingham Society President Monteen Crawford presented Barry Sheehy with a certificate of appreciation for his research and having the marker erected. A nice group enjoyed the dedication, refreshments and presentation by Norman Turner and Barry Sheehy, who sponsored the marker.  

Historic Effingham Society was very happy to hold their fall meeting in conjunction with the dedication.
