Parker's Ferry Battlefield

Located 33 miles west of Charleston, South Carolina, Parker’s Ferry hosted a major thoroughfare and crossing over the Pon Pon River during the Revolutionary War. This battlefield and the nearby Battle of Eutaw Springs are key pieces of the Liberty Trail, the innovative driving tour the Trust is developing to connect key battlefields of the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution. The battlefield is located near Jacksonborough which holds an impressive cluster of historic sites, including Pon Pon Church, the grave of the Southern martyr Isaac Hayne, and the capital of South Carolina in 1782 where civil government was re-established.
