Historians pinpoint site of Revolutionary ambush

Historians pinpoint site of Revolutionary ambush | World Heritage Sites | Scoop.it
After six years of research, historians say they have pinpointed the site of Huck's Defeat — a skirmish in York County that set the stage for larger victories that turned the tide of the Revolutionary War against the British.

 

The precise location of the battle officially remained a mystery for more than a century until York County historian Michael Scoggins and a team of archaeologists explored a 10-acre patch of land in Historic Brattonsville. The Culture & Heritage Museums of York County announced the discovery in September.

 

History books can be updated to say that Huck's Defeat took place near the home of James Williamson, a settler who lived close to the present-day town of McConnells in southwestern York County, Scoggins said.

 

The discovery paves the way for a new, national historic site open to the public at the Brattonsville living history village, where Williamson's 18th century plantation and the Huck's Defeat battlefield are located.
