Frequent focus on Kershaw County’s Revolutionary struggles against the British does not overshadow local interests in modern historical times–such as World War II, when America and Great Britain were allied in freedom’s cause. On February 24, 2013, the Society’s program’s program was viewed with great interest, co-sponsored with the Larry Jeffers Post 195, American Legion, at their headquarters on Wildwood Lane. Speaker was a resident of neighboring Blythewood, John P. Cummer, World War II veteran, who discussed his experiences as a U.S. Navy gunner’s mate aboard amphibious landing craft on D-Day.
