The South Carolina Encyclopedia Guide to the American Revolution in South Carolina details the people, places, and struggles that defined the region's prominent role in the path to American liberty from British authority. Nearly 140 battles of the American Revolution were fought in South Carolina, more than in any other colony. As America's first civil war, the revolution pitted Loyalists against partisans and patriots in the fierce combat that established the legacies of figures such as Francis Marion, Nathanael Greene, Peter Horry, Henry and John Laurens, Daniel Morgan, and Andrew Jackson. In addition to profiling these leaders, this guide also chronicles the major combat operations, including the battles of Ninety Six, Cowpens, Camden, Kings Mountain, and Charleston Harbor. Also documented are the vital contributions of African Americans and Native Americans in the struggle and the roles of Revolutionary War heroines such as Kate Barry, Emily Geiger, Rebecca Brewton Motte, and Dorcas Nelson Richardson. The origins of the South Carolina state flag and seal in the war are detailed as well in this treasure trove of fascinating information for students and historians of the American Revolution.

"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."--James I. Roberston, Jr., author of Civil War Sites in Virginia: A Tour Guide and Stonewall Jackson: The Man, The Soldier, The Legend 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.
