Some of the most significant American losses and victories of the Revolutionary War took place in South Carolina, where military leaders such as Nathanael Greene, John Laurens, and Francis Marion, also known as the Swamp Fox, used guerilla warfare in a dramatic fight for independence.

The state’s brand-new Liberty Trail invites travelers to uncover lesser-known sites and fascinating figures related to the period. Parks, battlefields, museums, and churches, along with landmarks in Charleston and the Francis Marion National Forest, bring to life key events and people in South Carolina’s 18th-century history that are often overshadowed by the war that unfolded further north.

She offers tips on area guides and experts whose knowledge can deepen your experience, as well as recommendations for nearby attractions, great local food, drink, lodging, and hotspots along the way.
