King Haigler

By Phil Norfleet

I have little factual information concerning the legendary Catawba Chief, King Haigler; however, I do note that he and his band were erroneously reported to have buried Agnes of Glasgow in 1780!  This is a rather amazing feat for a man who was killed in 1763. A statue of Haigler is located atop a tower in the City of Camden, Kershaw County SC (see photos shown below).
