Battle of Hanging Rock

Those of you who know me know that one of my living history personas is that of Lt. Col. Thomas Brown, Commander of the King’s Carolina Rangers (KCR), a loyalist regiment during the Revolutionary War. Yesterday, August 6, was the 232nd Anniversary of one of the Battles that the unit participated in, the Battle of Hanging Rock, SC.

While Col. Brown was not present at that battle, a company of the KCR was present and they were instrumental in turning the tide of battle, preventing a complete rout of the British forces. To learn more about the battle check out the article that appeared in The Founder’s Blog yesterday:

Like many of the loyalist units in the south, the KCR is not well-known nor are their contributions to the British war effort well understood.
