17th Annual Reenactment and 153rd Anniversary of the Battle for Broxton Bridge
On the southern end of Broxton Bridge Plantation there is an old battleground, complete with all the breastworks, left over from the south's defenses on February 1, 1865 – 153 years ago. The northern army was in route from Savannah, Georgia, to Columbia, South Carolina, and the battles at Broxton Bridge and Rivers Bridge on the Salkehatchie River were the last big defensive effort for the Confederates before the battle at Columbia.
Guided tours can be arranged with prior notice at a cost of $10 per person. This money goes to help to fund our "Confererate Museum". Walking trails around a 10-acre lake or a walk to the battleground can be an exhilarating experience. we have a total of 58 miles of trails.
