Help save the Kettle Creek Battlefield in Wilkes
County, GA! A small percentage of the American Revolution battlefields have been preserved –
many battlefields have been taken over through expansion of cities, building projects, and other expansion projects and these
battlefields have been lost forever and cannot be recovered. Savannah and Augusta are two prime examples in Georgia where
the expansion of the cities have covered up the original battle sites.

Contribute and Support the Kettle Creek Battlefield Association
in developing/expanding the battle site to preserve the pristine battlefield. Your gifts have already allowed KCBA to purchase
an additional 60 acres and now Wilkes County has 75 acres of contiguous battlefield land. (see the story

- Kettle Creek. Your gifts will continue to help us purchase the surrounding land to
the immediate "War Hill" site - an expansion from (now) 75 acres to a projection of 200-873 acres. Our chance is
"now". We are very fortunate the land surrounding the War Hill site has been underdeveloped (degraded only through
farming and timber harvesting) since the original battle February 14th, 1779...but it is a matter of time before we lose this
opportunity to protect the threatened landscapes and historic sites from investors who wish to deny public access. Already
there is a threat of ownership for cutting off public access. We actively are beginning to seek a variety of funding
sources - individuals, foundations, corporations and governments to enable the purchase and development of this historic site.
There were some 11 major battles in Georgia - three in Savannah, two in Augusta, one in Screven County, one at Ebenezer, one
at Sunbury/Fort Morris, one at Vann's Creek, and one here at Kettle Creek. One Naval battle took place along the Frederica
River near Fort Federica on St. Simon's Island. Out of each of these battles during the American Revolution, Kettle Creek
is the only one which has a potential to preserve the complete battle field. The other battle sites are under water, under
growth and expansion of cities, and have a limited token amount of land like Fort Morris/Sunbury with the exception of Brier
Creek down in Screven County which is protected by Georgia's Department of Natural Resources as a hunting preserve. Georgia
needs to "Remember the Battle of Kettle Creek"- one of the few victorious sites during the American Revolution in
Georgia and truly one of the landmarks of Georgia.
We can't save this threatened battlefield alone—we need help from concerned citizens like you. Help us
save this Kettle Creek Battlefield.
