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.

Very nice. I like ones with the smoke from rifle shots.

You had a good location. The only reenactment I went to was held on a very hot, sunny day and there were no trees to provide shade.

Great series. The shots of the firing line are my favorites. The gun smoke makes it look like a real battle.

Wow, funny Cliff! I was just asking my parents "what is Historic Brattonsville?" as we drove down that way to see a litter of puppies yesterday. Dad even mentioned the re-enactment, I thought it might be fun to drop in. :smile:

Your shots are wonderful, I really like the one where they're firing and you caught the flying sparks!!!
