DECEMBER 7, 1941 the day our country was attacked. Great men and women, 2,280 servicemen and women along with 68 civilians were killed, 1,109 were wounded. Today we still honor those who were so viciously killed while they slept or lounged on that Sunday morning; and we pay homage to those who fought valiantly to revenge those deaths and keep our country free from others who would do us harm.
Tour with us to see the beauty of Aiken and learn the history of Our city, then be a part of the Christmas magic at the Tree Lighting . . .
