Star Fort Mine Tunnel Opened for Exploration

Posted by Ninety Six Historical Society on April 21, 2014 at 12:25 AM

The Mine Tunnel built by the American Patriots under the direction of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, engineer for Major General Nathaniel Greene was opened on April 14th, 2014 by the NPS.

The Park in collabroration with the University of South Florida opened the mine in an effort to document and preserve the 125 foot tunnel. The American troops fought the British stronghold for 28 days at Star Fort, the longest siege in the American Revolution. The British constructed a 14 foot high star shaped eathen fort (still in exsistence today) in an attempt to defend and secure the outpost. The tunnel, constructed wih the hopes of digging under the star fort and planting explosives, was not completed and the plans cut short when Major Greene learned of 2000 British troops enroute to Ninety Six from Charleston, SC and he retreated.

 Archaeologists using 3-D imaging, scanning and remote sensing equipment, the team sent cameras down to film and measure the 3 and a half foot high tunnel.  The SC Historic Preservation Director, along with SCETV /ETV  were present to mark this historic event.  The tunnel was discovered to have bricked walls in most of the area.

The project will also be part of a compiled history of the engineering skills of Thaddeaus Kosciuszko, a Polish native, who masterminded some of the greatest and most remarkable defense and offense engineering maneuvers of the war.
