Wordless Wednesday: The Battle of Anderson

Recreating the Battle of Anderson.

The Confederate line.

Federal troops pitch their tents on one side of the battlefield.

On 1 May 1865, Confederate and Union forces met on a small field in Anderson County, South Carolina, three weeks after Lee’s surrender at Appomattox. This obscure skirmish was one of the last to take place east of the Mississippi. Re-enactors meet at a field on the outskirts of Honea Path to recreate the battle for observers over three days each April.
