The Honey Hill - Boyd’s Neck Battlefield is significant as the site of an important operation of the Civil War on the southeastern coast, one launched in direct support of Gen. William T. Sherman’s epic march from Atlanta to Savannah. The boundary encompasses the site of the Civil War Battle of Honey Hill, November 30, 1864, as well as the Federal enclave on Boyd’s Neck and other related areas of the Honey Hill campaign, November 29, 1864 to January 11, 1865. The Battle of Honey Hill was one of the three largest Civil War battles fought in South Carolina, and was one of the most notable Civil War engagements involving African American troops. Honey Hill was also one of the last outright victories won by Confederate forces anywhere. The Honey Hill Battlefield itself, and as continuous landscape of associated areas running east to Boyd’s Landing, are generally undeveloped and forested, and exhibit a very high degree of integrity. The 1864 road net is substantially intact, and extensive Civil War earthworks are extant and well-preserved on the property. The property is also significant as an archaeological resource, with potential to yield information concerning the Honey Hill campaign and the material culture of the forces engaged. Listed in the National Register July 4, 2004.
