Battle of Boykin’s Mill
Battle of Boykin’s Mill
Come explore the American Civil War battle site where local Confederate forces were outnumbered by 2,500 Federal troops including the famous 54th Massachusetts Regiment.
Although the Confederates were defeated, their resistance led to heavy losses for the Federal troops. Casualties included the last Federal officer to lose his life in the war. The Battle of Boykin’s Mill was also the last battle to be fought in South Carolina. A monument stands at the Boykin’s Mill complex in memory of the soldiers who fought on both sides of the conflict.
Visitors may visit the monument and town at any time.
