South Carolinians are fiercely loyal to our elders and ancestors. So why not take a day trip over to Ehrhardt to walk in the footprints of both Union and Confederate soldiers in one of the last Confederate stands against the Union army in the Civil War? Even if your family wasn’t in the states during this conflict, you’ll still feel the rich heritage of the most well-preserved Civil War battlefield in South Carolina.

Battle of Rivers Bridge State Historic Site is open daily from 9 a.m. to sunset. Admission is free. Saturday tours cost $5 for adults and $2.50 for South Carolina senior residents. Dogs are allowed, provided they’re on a leash no longer than six feet.
