On Saturday at 11 a.m., Screven County's Remember Brier Creek Committee will hold a memorial ceremony for the estimated 150 American soldiers who died in the gruesome Revolutionary War Battle of Brier Creek on March 3, 1779. This is one of the most important Revolutionary War battles in Georgia, said Screven County historian Alex Lee. "Many local families are descended from veterans of that battle," he said.
