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.

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...More
