So this little known battle was between a super confident Col. Tarleton with hardened British regulars in search of our General Sumter and the some recent SC militia. So veteran troops under a skilled and feared commander against farmers with their back to the river. There was no doubt how this was going to turn out, so it was with great surprise that the Redcoats had to retreat and leave their wounded. Muskets vs. Rifles in the woods over uneven ground = Bad.

There is a nice trail of a couple miles on length that walks this knob, both from the British approach and by the slow moving and majestic Tyger River behind the American lines. There is a monument here but you would do well to read up on this before you get out there. SC may turn this into a park one day but until then come prepared to see this interesting and hauntingly beautiful site.

This site may be hard to find and it is in a very remote location. Go to the nearby Musgrove Mill state historical site first if you are unsure and they can direct you. The historical marker for the battle is at the main highway SC 49 and Blackstock Battlefield Rd.. Follow the road and take a right on monument and then a left when you see the small Palmetto Trust sign and arrow. If not for that I would have not turned that way. It is going to be gravel and mud on the roadway so wait until it is dry to tramp down there. The grass parking area has a few text panels and a trail head. The trail is steep and leads down to the river. Drive past the parking area and you will end up at the monument and battlefield without having to hike the trail and there is a display panel to read. It is a neat place to be but hard to understand troop positions if you did not study and bring your own materials. Only the hardcore person would get it and be excited about the site.

There isnt much here for the non rev war junkie, well there are hiking trails, but it is a lovely place for a picnic. No restrooms though.

It is a drive to get here & there isn't much here but there is such an eerie quality about it that I must suggest it to anyone who is into the Revolutionary War. You can almost here the battle through the silence and feel it on the wind. A beautiful drive this time of year and you can stop by Musgrove Mill historic site on your way.

I enjoy going to battlefields-so when I found this one is open to the public=I had to go. the battlefield is maintained by the state of SC parks. It's like 10 miles from Musgrove Mills Historic Site. Direction signs make the field easy to find. the final portion of the drive takes you down a long logging run which is semi-paved. just keep driving until you reach the end of the run. park your car and walk a short distance to the clearing. It is here where the Americans fought the British during the American Revolution. Nothing remains of Blackstocks farm. There is a historical marker remembering when/what took place. Its so quiet and peaceful now- great for reflecting on the battle. The site is best for history buffs who enjoy going to actual sites. There is a trail that is part of the palmetto Trail network. I did not walk the trail. It does take the hiker down to the Tyger River. I stayed about a half hour walking around the field. If your in the area-check it out.
