About the event

Event Details:

On November 20, 1780, following a fierce battle late in the day, General Thomas Sumter gave the feared Lt. Colonel Banastre Tarleton his first defeat during the Revolutionary War. The battle of Blackstock was fought on the farm of Captain William Blackstock along the Tyger River in what is today Union County. The Battle of Musgrove Mill State Historic Site is offering a unique Ranger Guided Hike of the undeveloped Blackstock Battlefield that will cover the events leading up to the battle, the commanders and soldiers from both sides involved in the battle itself, and the importance of the battle to the wider history of the Revolutionary War.

The hike is two hours long and will take place mostly off-trail over difficult and hilly terrain. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for hiking and bring bottled water. No pets on the hike. Currently, there are no facilities on site so please plan ahead.

What to Bring:

Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for hiking and bring bottled water.

Meeting Location:

Meet at 9:45 am at the Blackstock Battlefield State Historic (Site Address: 568 Monument Road, Enoree, SC 29335)
