ORANGEBURG OUT OF THE PAST

Big Friday Football, late 1940s or early 1950s: For many years there was a college football game at the Orangeburg County Fair on Fridays that was called “Big Friday.” It is thought that the two teams playing here are the University of South Carolina and The Citadel from a game in the late 1940s or the early 1950s. Some of the aspects of the Fair can be seen in the background.
