Last time we visited the site was run down and looked as though no one was taking care of it. There was scattered trash and to be a historic site I figured it would be taken care of.

This battlefield represents a great part of Georgia history and the part that it played in the Revolutionary war. It is improving each year as grants are awarded for improvements. It is a great place for young people to experience and learn about the founding of our country and how the local area played a great part in it's development.

We all know of the Revolutionary battlefields of Valley Forge, and Yorktown. But finding out that a critical revolutionary battlefield was in Georgia, was a surprise. Growing up and being educated in Georgia, I had no idea... If you enjoy history, American, Southern, or Georgia, you must visit! Granted it's not easy to find, and is not overrun with tourist....

This first time visit was an adventure and give ones with a vivid imagination the feeling the armies are near and could come through the trees any time. It is a must for anyone who appreciates the history of colonial Georgia and America. There is a picnic table for persons staying a while for hiking the. That is my goal... More

It was interesting. A very long drive in the country. I guess it always is when you really don't know the area. Needs some TLC but still it was definitely worth seeing.

Climbing War Hill to reach Kettle Creek Battlefield feels like traveling back in time, through woods where American Patriot forces and Loyalists fought one of the most important battles of the Revolutionary War to be fought in Georgia. At the top of the hill is a small, pretty park, with two monuments and a small cemetery, where some of the... More

So many Ga sites are associated with the Civil War, we sometimes forget there were several key Revolutionary War actions here too. While often think of this more towards Coastal Ga, this site is tucked away at the end of a dirt road. Definitely do a little reading on it before you go there as it will help to interpret... More

Toured this site because of my family's heritage and involvement in this important battle. The site is being studied for further development, to increase in size and scope. The names of some of the patriots who fought in this battle are written on various forms of monuments, however there are more expected as a verification process moves forward. Clearly worth... More
