Cleveland School fire - May 17, 1923

On the night of May 17, 1923, approximately 300 persons local to the little country school known as the Cleveland School, southeast of Camden, South Carolina, attended the children's graduation play. During the play an oil lamp fell, igniting the second floor auditorium. The resulting fire destroyed the school and killed 60-80 people. This serves as my online memorial to those that died that night, and to those that survived but passed away later in life.
