Side 1: William Bratton PlantationIn 1766 William Bratton and his wife Martha Robertson purchased 200 acres on the South Fork of Fishing Creek and built a single-pen log house here at the junction of several important colonial roads. The Bratton home was the first in what would become the community of Brattonsville. Bratton was an important civil leader, serving also as an officer in the patriot militia during the Revolution.

Side 2: Battle of Huck's DefeatJames Williamson also settled on Fishing Creek in 1766 and built a log house 400 yards SE of here. On July 12, 1780, 120 British and loyalist troops, led by Christian Huck, camped at the Williamson home. They were attacked and defeated by 140 local patriot militiamen led by Colonel William Bratton and other officers in the Battle of Williamson's Plantation or "Huck's Defeat."
