About the event

We’re celebrating Decoration Day on the farm again with our Gullah Campfire Supper with Stories and Songs.

The guest speaker for this year is Rev. Dr. Elijah Washington, the current Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic whose historic hall is located at 706 Newcastle Street, Beaufort.

Built in 1896, this meeting hall for the post is believed to be the only surviving building in South Carolina associated with the Grand Army of the Republic. The post hosted annual Decoration Day services at Beaufort National Cemetery and the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War continue that tradition. It is included in the Beaufort Historic District.

This is going to be a wonderful time learning about the United States Colored Troops and their service. We will have a short graveside ceremony as we did last year to lay flowers at the graves of deceased USCT members. Ticket information is available on our farm website.

Camping is available through our listing on Hipcamp where our name is Friendly Fowl Farm.

The visit to the Coffin Point Plantation cemetery will begin at 6:00 pm and end at 6:30. The program with the supper will take place at the farm at 7:00.
