This was very interesting... 3 soldiers are buried on that land... 10 total was killed due to slow communication.. General Lee had surrendered but they still were fighting due to it taking 10 days for word to reach them...

Just a field and a few markers, but notable because the battle, which killed 10, took place as Lee was surrendering. Took another 10 days for them to get word.

If you stop and read the marker you will learn about this battle. Disabled, elderly and those too young to go off to war were the only ones left to defend this land from the Union Soldiers.

This is a very small location but notable. This battle actually took place after the war was over. There are markers and informational boards that tell the story. Sometimes the grass is fairly deep so be sure to wear shoes (not sandals) and be on the lookout for snakes, as usual in this part of the country.

Visiting this site is a treat for Civil war and history buffs, but its also very sad because it is not very well kept up. This is a neat place to visit because it was one of the last battles of the Civil War that was tragically fought after a treaty of peace was signed (due to poor communication this... More

Story of one of the Civil War's last battles. As the Union Forces approached the train yards in Sumter they were met by 'old men, children, and invalides' (all patriots). Unfortunately, the battle actually occured after the treaty between the North and South had been signed but due to poor communication no one got the word. I didn't go looking... More

Historic Markers and graves. This is a tragic tribute to Confederate Patriots (Old Men, Children, and Cripples) who tried to stop a Union Force who was approaching Sumpter, SC to immobilize their railroad. Unfortunately, the war was over as Robert E. Lee had already surrendered to General Grant up in Virginia earlier in the day. Communication, however; was slow and... More

Worth a 5 minute stop. It is not a major battlefield. Total of 10 killed, 27 wounded and 2 captured.

This is a small skirmish spot. Easy to find, located south of Sumter. This skirmish which was part of Potters Raid is maintained quite well. The info board gives a good background of the path Potter took on his raid. The graves of three Union soldiers are on the property. Also old cannons and monuments are placed around the property....
