On February 14, 1779, Patriots defeated Loyalists at the Battle of Kettle Creek to forever break the stranglehold the British had on Georgia. Located just outside of Washington, Kettle Creek Battlefield was purchased by the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1900 with hopes of developing it as a historic site. Today, the battlefield is listed on the National Register of Historic Places (1975) and features monuments dating back to 1930. A picnic area atop "War Hill" and several hiking trails now welcome guests daily. The Kettle Creek Battlefield Association has been actively pursuing plans to transition the property into a full-scale historical and recreational park since 2011. Each February the site hosts history aficionados from throughout the country at Revolutionary Days with a parade, battle re-enactments, and pageantry. Special guided tours can be arranged for group visits.
