Although the first skirmishes (Concord and Lexington) of the Revolutionary War were fought in Massachusetts, battles were spread up and down the coast, from Quebec, Canada, to Savannah, Georgia. A southern battle site is preserved at Musgrove Mill State Historic Site. A bloody encounter pitted South Carolina's Patriot militia against Provincial regulars and Loyalists. It's been written the Patriots scored a convincing victory, marking a turning point of the war in the Carolinas.
