Overview

More Revolutionary War battles were fought in South Carolina than in any other state. At least 250 well-documented conflicts took place in the Palmetto State, including three of the war's most decisive battles--Camden, Cowpens, and Kings Mountain. This easy-to-use handbook gives precise directions for driving and hiking to the actual locations where forty-five of the most exciting conflicts occurred.

History comes alive as visitors to Hanging Rock learn that future president Andrew Jackson served there--when he was only thirteen. Read about British colonel Banastre Tarleton's massacre of surrendering Patriots, while standing right where it happened at the former Waxhaws settlement. Each entry also features a summary, including the date and location of each battle, the commanders' names, and the number of fatalities and casualties on both sides.

R. L. Barbour, a resident of Charleston, has a master's degree in antebellum Southern history.
