Blackstock was the site of a major battle between the Patriot soldiers led by Gen. Thomas Sumter and the British forces under the command of Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton on November 20, 1780. The British were defeated rather badly because of Tarleton's tactical error in dividing his troops and Sumter's choice of a formidable position to defend. In 1780, Blackstock's Plantation was situated on a steep eminence with its flanks well protected. Today the site has a granite Blackstock's Battlefield Monument.
