Approach To Honey Hill
In the summer of 1864, Gen Sherman requested that the Savannah- Charleston Railroad be cut. Gen Hatch set out with 5500 men from Folly Island to land at Boyd's Landing at the end of Broad River, North and West of Hilton Head. The army would march to Honey Hill and there cut the railroad. However, they were in for a surprise.
