How many revolutionary battles and skirmishes occurred in South Carolina? There is no definitive answer. The number depends on the knowledge and resources of the person compiling the list. It also depends on the criteria for defining a battle. This list includes over two hundred pitched battles, smaller skirmishes, raids, frontier massacres, captures of key military posts with or without bloodshed, important arms seizures, and military incidents celebrated in local folklore. A few North Carolina and Georgia battles are included in this edition and will be included in future editions as well.
