While in South Carolina on vacation we took the kids out in over 100 degree weather to visit a near by historical plantation that put on a re-enactment of "The Battle of Huck's Defeat." "The Battle of Huck's Defeat was a significant turning point for the back country during the American Revolution. Early on the morning of July 12, a battle was fought near the home of Col. William Bratton in York County, South Carolina, which was to have far-reaching consequences for the Patriot cause. This engagement is known as the Battle of Williamson's Plantation or, more popularly, simply as "Huck's Defeat." (wanna know more?)
It was amazing! I loved hearing the guns blast, my kids "oooh and ahhh", and capturing it all with my 70-200 - gotta love getting close!
