Throwback thursday buford s massacre site


Buford's Massacre Site, also known as Buford’s Battleground, is a historic site and national historic district located near Lancaster, Lancaster County, South Carolina. Two monuments now mark the Buford Battleground. A white monument ten feet tall, erected on June 2, 1860, marked the American gravesite. This marker became so scarred from chippings of souvenir hunters that a new monument was erected on May 1, 1955, bearing the same inscription. Buford’s Massacre was one of the many vicious actions that characterized the Revolutionary War campaigns in the backcountry South. This particular battle became a symbol of British atrocities and Tarleton became known as “Bloody Tarleton.”

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.
