This report presents the results of historical and archeological research to define the Revolutionary War battle of Williamson’s Plantation (Huck’s Defeat), located in York County, South Carolina. Analysis of historic documents, metal detector survey, and archeological excavations at Historic Brattonsville revealed the location of the battlefield (site 38YK564) although there appears to be very little archeological remains associated with the Williamson plantation house. Survey surrounding the site indicates that site 38YK564 is the only remaining remnant of the battlefield.
