This is a very important Revolutionary War battlefield. While it was an American loss it fired up the back country which changed the course of the war. The State and the local Sun City support group have done an outstanding job

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.

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.
