"The Village of Eadytown is the site of the last known Indian tribe in Upper St. John's Parish. In early 1700 American Settlers, moving inland, settled here and eventually became a vital part of the Community. Fort Schinkin, located on the Santee River, North of this marker, was the scene of a bloody battle in 1715 between the Yemassee Indians and 23 local settlers, 22 of whom died. Residents have served America honorably and well during the many wars that have been fought to keep our freedom. From the American Revolution, where many served under Gen. Francis Marion, the Indian wars, the War between the States, when the entire area was plundered and burned by troops of Gen. Potter and Hartwell, the War of 1812, the Spanish-American, WW I and WW II, Korea, Viet Nam, Desert Storm. Many are the heroes buried in cemeteries throughout the area. Here, on the banks of the old Santee Canal, begun in 1794, in use by 1800, many residents labored, many died from the fever, but the 22 miles of hand dug canal using hand made bricks for the 3 locks, made possible the linking of the Santee and Cooper Rivers. Now listed on the National Historic Register. Once a bustling village with 2 schools, Post office, many businesses, much of the old community lies beneath Lake Marion. This ground we hold sacred is now known for fine fishing and hunting. Some of the Great families of our Nation have family ties here, in Eadytown."
