Ninety Six National Historic Site
Troop 10 visited the Ninety Six National Historic Site in South Carolina. The Revolutionary Star Fort there is the best-preserved example of earthen defenses of that era left in the United States. In 1781, General Nathaniel Greene led a 28-day siege of the British fort that ended with the withdrawal of the Continental army. After the siege, the British burned the town and abandoned the fort. The battlefield is preserved as a park and museum, and a pond on the grounds is a popular destination for fishermen and families. Troop 10 gave more than 100 hours of service cleaning the lake and grounds and improving the Cherokee Path trail after recent severe storms.

Ninety Six: End Game | The Southern Campaign
Ninety Six was a small frontier town near Greenwood, South Carolina—an essential part of the geography of British strongholds designed to seal off Charleston and the low country from French, Spanish, and Indian attack. At the “Star Fort” in Ninety Six, a band of loyalists held their ground, waiting to see what would happen.
On May 21, 1781, General Greene and approximately a thousand troops, marched south towards Ninety-Six, to lay “siege” to the Star Fort. It is was the longest field siege of The American Revolution. It lasted 28 days.

Ninety Six National Historic Site is a Revolutionary War battle site that commemorates the first battle south of New England fought on November 19-21, 1775 and the longest field siege of the American Revolution, lasting 28 days in May --June 1781. Ninety Six played an important role in a series of events that ultimately led to the defeat and surrender of the British at Yorktown, Virginia in October 1781. The historic site is a unit of the National Park Service, a bureau of the United States Department of the Interior.
The AIST at the University of South Florida in conjunction with the National Park Service Southeast Archeology Center (SEAC), used 3D laser scanning, RTK GPS, and geophysical survey to accurate map the various underground and above ground features at this site. These data will be used for site preservation and to provide a digital archive, and will also assist in the development of educational and site/museum engagement and experience enhancements for the NPS.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.

Ninety Six National Historic Site Terrestrial Laser Scanning Survey
This project featured a unique partnership between the University of South Florida, the National Park Service, and Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) affiliate, South Carolina Educational Television, who recorded the project as part of a television documentary. This project provides baseline data and produces 3D digital details of the critically threatened Kosciusko's Mine and other historic features at Ninety Six National Historic Site. Using three-dimensional terrestrial laser scanning survey, high-resolution photographic techniques, and geophysical sub-surface survey along with survey and mapping-grade GPS, we captured and recorded the contextual terrain and site details of the above ground and underground tunnel features and surrounding environs. Additionally, airborne LiDAR and aerial imagery were used to examine the larger environment and along with other data collected, assisted in detailing the present state of the site. These data provide valuable larger scale terrain modeling, visualization and information and Ninety Six National Historic Site. Public interpretive media were also developed from these data, showing how these technologies can be used to enhance and improve the visitor experience. Examples include 3D augmentation of park signage, 3D printing and modeling of the underground and terrain features, and video and web-based model production for heritage interpretation.

ETV Endowment Southern Campaign, Day 2:
On Day 2 of the Southern Campaign tour, we visited the star fort up in Ninety-Six, South Carolina. There were two battles fought at the fort: one in 1775, and again in 1781, after the surrender of British General Cornwallis at Yorktown. The latter battle was the bigger engagement. After Cornwallis' surrender, Patriot General Nathaniel Greene needed to sweep the backcountry areas in the South, since there were quite a few British occupied forts left in the area. The Ninety-Six star fort was one of these fortifications. The patriots dug trenches in order to get closer to the star fort, and a Polish-Lithuanian engineer, Colonel Thaddeus Kosciusko, attempted to dig a tunnel under the fort, to blow it up from underground with gunpowder. The tunnel almost got to the fort, but when Gen. Greene heard news of the imminent arrival of British reinforcements, the patriots retreated.
The tourists saw a movie about the battle in the visitors center, and then, with tour guides Dr. Walter Edgar, and John Slaughter, of the National Park Service, we toured the battlefield. The weather fared much better this time around; raining only a little bit in the morning, but then cleared up in the afternoon.
