    Historic Brattonsville is the actual site of the important Patriot militia victory known as the Battle of Huck’s Defeat. The Battle of Huck's Defeat set the stage for significant victories during the American Revolution. The annual event includes a reenactment of the 1780 battle between the local Patriot militia and Loyalist troops commanded by the loathed British commander Capt. Christian Huck.
    Throughout the weekend, Historic Brattonsville will come alive through live action cavalry and camp life with reenactor regiments from all over the Southeast. There’ll be 18th-century artillery firing demonstrations along with pistols and sabers wielded by soldiers on horseback.
