Decoration Day at McLeod Plantation Historic Site

McLeod Plantation Historic Site | Charleston County Parks and Recreation

One of the earliest Memorial Day ceremonies was held in Charleston, South Carolina and was called Decoration Day. This day, primarily organized by African Americans, honored those who gave their lives in service of our Country.

We remember Decoration Day at McLeod Plantation Historic Site through a series of speakers, community partner tables, Gullah cuisine, and a tribute to our Veterans. Join us and learn about the history of the day and the many connections between the people who once lived on James Island, their descendants, and their legacy of service to the United States of America.

This year's featured speakers include Victoria Smalls, Executive Director of the Gullah Geechee Corridor; Bishop John Gathers, a descendant of one of the earliest known enslaved families at McLeod Plantation Historic Site; and Scott Peterson, the great-great grandson of Private G.W. Smothers who was once stationed on James Island and left his signature onsite.
