The area between the Kershaw House and Camden was the scene of numerous military exercises throughout the years. Occupying British troops used the field as a parade ground, and in 1825, Revolutionary War hero the Marquise de Lafayette reviewed troops here during his visit to Camden. The area served as a center for militia activities and a mustering point for local volunteers leaving for war. The name of the waterhead at the foot of the hill, Muster Spring, is a reminder of the field's military use.
