So many papers to grade…

Just like in that Patriot movie!

Mark and I are visiting his sister who lives in South Carolina. On our way to her place Mark and I saw a sign for Historic Brattonsville. The next day we went to see it.

Brattonsville was the site of a Revolutionary War battle called Huck’s defeat. In this battle, although only one soldier in the American militia was killed, a large majority of the British were slaughtered. This battle was not close. I won’t tell you how the whole war ended.

Brattonsville was also the place where a lot of the movie The Patriot was filmed. Many of the houses on the property were used in the film, including the main house in the first picture.


There really wasn’t a lot going on in Brattonsville the day we went. There were no performances scheduled. I hear, though, that this is a great place to spend the fourth of July!

The United States of America

How to get there:

You can enter my country by land, air, or sea. But I think flight would be your transportation method of choice.

I have no clue how to get a visa to the US or who needs one. Just assume that you need one if you are not American or Canadian and check with your local US embassy.


  • Use 911 for the police, fire department, or to get an ambulance
  • Use 411 for information (This might cost money.)






  • It’s a big country. You’re going to need a car.
