Blackstock Battlefield State Historic Site

This is the site where Gen. Sumter defeated the hated Col. Banastre Tarleton. This large battle was important for lifting backcountry morale and for encouraging Gen. Greene to send Continentals into the region, who two months later turned the tide of the Revolutionary War at Cowpens. Situated along the Tyger River in Union County, this beautiful property is home to a 2.5-mile segment of the Palmetto Trail that provides tremendous recreation potential along the river. Open daily from dawn until dusk.
