In the last two decades there has been a local effort to improve this significant historical site. The local high school built a brick sign that displays for all who pass just what this site is. There was... More

I had the good fortune of going to school in this community. This battle ground is well known in the area, which brings a security that these soldiers won't be forgotten.

This Battleground has a few monuments and memorials. It is interesting to me as my ancestors came from this area, at that time. Check it out !! Many soldiers lost their lives here... There is a gated enclosure where they are buried.

My family and I live within 10 minutes away, and you can't just drive by and think it is just a graveyard. Get out of you vehicle,... More

This is one of those Historic places that you can view in a sort period of time if you are in the area. It is part of our history for sure, like many battle fields of the time.

It is full of history. Check out the Buford Variety Stop Café for a meal or ice cream while you're there.

Really little to see and nothing to do. Just an ordinary historic site.

A quiet battleground, where your imagination can let loose. Not much to see, not attended, but there is a quietness and solitude here that makes it worth a quick visit.

I came across a website for Buford's Bloody Massacre by accident when I was looking for attractions and things to do while planning for our trip to South Carolina recently. It's name caught my attention because my dad's name is Buford. I felt like this was a sign...this was one of the places we'd put on our list. As I... More
