Come out to join us late in the day on Sunday, November 20, 2022 on the 242nd Anniversary of the Battle of Blackstocks for a special Ranger Guided Battlefield Hike. On November 20, 1780 following a fierce battle late in the day, General Thomas Sumter gave the feared Lt. Colonel Banastre Tarleton his first defeat during the Revolutionary War. The Battle of Musgrove Mill State Historic Site is offering a unique Ranger Guided Hike of the undeveloped Blackstock Battlefield that will cover the events leading up to the battle, the commanders and soldiers from both sides involved in the battle itself, and the importance of the battle to the wider history of the Revolutionary War. The hike is two hours long and will take place mostly off trail over difficult and hilly terrain. Please wear appropriate clothing and footwear for hiking and bring bottled water. No pets on hike. Currently there are no facilities on site so please plan ahead. Space is limited, so reservations are required in advance. Reserve your spot by clicking the "Book Now" button above.
