Eleven years after the Battle of Rivers Bridge, a local South Carolina group of young men formed the Rivers Bridge Confederate Memorial Association. Not far from the Salekehatchie River Battlefield a memorial park was established and the Confederate dead were reburied at the new site. The association continued to meet every year to honor the dead and proudly recall the only major southern opposition to General Sherman's March through the Carolinas. Although vastly outnumbered, the Confederate troops held off Sherman's advance for two days until they were finally forced from their breastworks. A three-quarter mile trail, complete with interpretive panels, leads visitors to one of the best preserved battle sites in South Carolina.
