Bloody Point is aptly name, an Indian battle-ground since time immemorial. Tribes fought tribes here long before the coming of the white man. And when the white m an came there were battles fought here too. Birthplace of America? Forget Lexington Bridge, when the New England militia faced down the British army. The birthplace of America was right here off Bloody Point, where patriots stole a shipload of British gunpowder and used it to turn an invasion of Charleston on June 28, 1770.
