The Redcoats Are Coming

Reenactment at the 225th Anniversary of the Siege on Star Fort, South Carolina.

Historic Star Fort was located near the town of Ninety Six. It had been built by the British to protect early settlers in the area from Indian attacks. In 1775, it became the site of the first land battle of the Revolutionary War fought south of New England. Later, General Nathanael Greene and 1,000 of his troops laid siege to the star-shaped fort. Although he was unable to dislodge the 550 British Loyalists defending Star Fort, General Greene is credited with staging the longest siege of the Revolutionary War.
