Tories Looted the Bratton House in Brattonsville SC #southcarolinapioneersnet #genealogy

Captain Christian Huck Looted the Bratton House 

The home of Colonel William Bratton, a local militia commander in the Revolutionary War, was built during the 1770s. On July 11 of 1780, Tory forces serving under Captain Christian Huck looted the Bratton house and threatened his wife. The Loyalist, encamped about a mile from the Bratton house, at the James Williamson plantation, was awakened at daybreak by Patriot troops whose commanders included Colonel Bratton. Captain Huck was killed during the battle.  York Co. SC Genealogy Records and Histories
