South Carolina's Revolutionary War Battlefields: A Tour Guide

by R. Barbour
 

"While New Englanders like to think of the American Revolution as 'their' war, more battles for colonial independence were fought in South Carolina than in any other area. This nicely crafted work is a guide to 45 engagements waged in the Palmetto State."

Did you know that more Revolutionary War battles took place in South Carolina than in any other state?

Approximately 250 armed conflicts took place in the Palmetto State, though some historians estimate that figure to be closer to 300. South Carolina's Revolutionary War Battlefields takes you to the very spot where some of the most pivotal and exciting engagements occurred. See Hanging Rock, where a thirteen-year-old Andrew Jackson served as messenger, and the former Waxhaws settlement, where the British colonel Banastre Tarleton massacred the surrendering Patriots. Visit Camden, Cowpens, and Kings Mountain, considered three of the most decisive battles of the Revolutionary War.

Each of this guide's 45 chapters focuses on a single battle, giving precise directions for driving and hiking to the site. After a description of the action, a summary lists the commanders' names and the number of fatalities and casualties on both sides.
