Historic Brattonsville, in McConnels, South Carolina, is the preserved farm of Wiiliam Brattoon, who served as a colonel in the malitia, in the US Revolutionary War, and fought in the Battle of Huck's Defeat, which occurred at this location. The name does not leave much doubt as to the outcome of the battle, does it? Every July, they present a two day recreation of the battle. By the way, those of you who are movie fans might be interested in knowing that most of the movie, The Patriot, withMel Gibson, was shot here. Here are a few shots taken yesterday.
