The Battle of Hanging Rock took place in the heat of August in 1780. After what was considered a win on the part of the Patriots, the men are said to have raided the rum stored by the British and then they marched back to their camp in what is now Waxhaw, North Carolina.
The trailhead that leads to the site of the Battle of Hanging Rock is located on Hanging Rock Road, just off Flat Rock Road to the south of Heath Springs, South Carolina. Learn more and see it on a map when you visit the link from our friends at AllTrails.
