In the original Battle of Anderson County fought during the Civil War in 1865, the Union suffered two casualties and the Confederacy had none. In a recent reenactment, however, it was Union none, Confederacy one.

From an Associated Press story in South Carolina’s The State:

The battle recreation had to be stopped for about 30 minutes after a Confederate cavalryman with the Laurens Orphans suffered a gunpowder burn to the leg and a cut that appeared to need stitches, said Allen Ashley, commander of the John Thomas Ashley Camp No. 43 in Honea Path.
