Greene's Lost Campsite
Ninety Six National Historic Site
Date: February 7, 2004
From February 6-9, 2004, Archeologists from the Southeast Archeological Center (SEAC) in Florida and several volunteers from a North Carolina metal detecting club tried all weekend to find General Green’s 1781 campsite. Nothing was found, but several sites were ruled out. Greene’s campsite remains illusive.
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.
