Maham Tower

During the Siege of Ninety Six, the Patriots built a rifle 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. A reproduction stands now at 10 feet, one third of the original height.
