August 6, 1780

Named for the nearby boulder called Hanging Rock, this battleground was the site of three British camps, which were attacked by Patriot troops on August 6, 1780. It was a fight primarily between countrymen — Patriots who supported independence and Loyalists who supported British rule. The ardent Patriots seized two camps and inflicted heavy casualties before withdrawing to continue the resistance.
