Did You Know?
During the Siege of Ninety Six, Patriots built a Maham Tower. Sharpshooters were able to fire into the Loyalist held Star Fort. The Loyalists tried to burn the tower but it was made of green wood & would not burn. The original was 30 ft tall, but our replica at Ninety Six NHS is only 10 ft tall.
