Ring Fight

At the intersection of State Rd S-37-375 and Tamassee Knob Rd, there is an historical sign commemorating Tamassee Town, the site of the Battle of Ring Fight, fought on August 12, 1776. The sign reads:

Near this site once stood the Cherokee "lower town" of Tamassee. On August 12, 1776 a Revolutionary War battle known as the "Ring Fight" was fought here between the Cherokee and the South Carolina Militia under Captain Andrew Pickens. The Cherokee were defeated and many years later Gen. Pickens built his house here when he retired. The Cherokee became his neighbors and friends.
