The Battle of Huck’s Defeat

Saturday, July 14, 2018
McConnells, S.C.- An 800-acre living history plantation in York County, SC, Historic Brattonsville is the actual site of the first Patriot militia victory known as the Battle of Huck’s Defeat. As the annual reenactment of the 1780 skirmish between the Patriot militia and the loathed British commander Capt. Huck takes place, the story unfolds of how Martha Bratton, wife of militia commander Col. William Bratton, and Watt, an slaved African American, helped to save the day.

Reenactments of pivotal American Revolution battles will take place during the two day event on Saturday, July 14 and on Sunday, July 15. Throughout the weekend Historic Brattonsville will come alive with cavalry and camp life, scripted scenarios and live music of the era. Visitors can shop for period wares from sutler’s row. An 18th-century style church service will be held on Sunday morning.

Food concessions will be available for purchase on both days.
