Hanging Rock Battlefield

The Hanging Rock Battleground park, maintained by the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism, and is located two miles south of Heath Springs, occupies a portion of the 1780 battlefield.  A stone marker, on a trail next to a stack of large boulders just off Hanging Rock Road, describes the battle there.  Further north along Flat Rock Road near Hanging Rock Creek is the portion of the battlefield where the British camps were attacked.
