Rumors abound of War within the Kingdom and the warriors in Southern Atlantia gather to learn battle tactics and strategies so they can be prepared.
Whether it's the strength of heavy weapons, finesse of the rapier, or the accuracy of archery and thrown weapons, War embodies the skills and traditions of SCA Martial activities. Fighters will experience a variety of combat scenarios and activities to help them achieve glory on the field of war.

GPS Note!! Most GPS services will navigate you correctly all the way to Woodland Drive but we have found that many will place the driveway entrance approximately 1/4 mile off. Just be wary of this fact when using GPS and keep an eye out for the SCA signs as you draw near.
From Points Northeast:
Find your best route to Interstate 20 westbound. Take Interstate 20 to Exit 22, Aiken, SC (Rt. 1). Follow Rt. 1 South through Aiken, turn south on Rt. 19 (Whiskey Rd) and follow it into New Ellenton. At the only light in New Ellenton (there's a small used car dealer on the left), turn right on Smith Ave. At the end of Smith Ave., turn left onto Old Whiskey Rd. Take the first right onto Woodland Dr. Drive just over 1 mile; the driveway is on the right. NOTE: Driveway is ~1/2 mile long!
Cross the Savannah River on Sand Bar Ferry Rd into and through Beech Island. Go through the two lights on the east side of Beech Island and under the overpass, staying on Rt. 278. Go ~14 miles to Woodland Dr. (2 roads intersect close together, Woodland is the 2nd one.) Turn left (at the Public Golf course sign) and go ~1/2 mile. Turn left onto driveway. NOTE: Driveway is approximately 1/2 mile long!
From Points Southeast:
Find the best route to Rt. 278 westbound toward Aiken/Augusta. Take Rt. 278 until you reach New Ellenton and the juncture with Rt. 19. Cross Rt. 19 at the light and continue on 278. Go ~1 mile farther on Rt. 278 then take the first right onto Woodland Dr. (across from the Public Golf course sign). Drive ~1/2 mile. Turn left onto driveway. NOTE: Driveway is approximately 1/2 mile long!
