The river brought the first peoples to this place. Located on the fall line where the piedmont meets the ancient shore at the Sand Hills, the Augusta community began in 1736 as a fur trading post and fort named in honor of Princess Augusta, bride of the Prince of Wales. The American Revolution began less than four decades later; in Augusta and other areas of the backcountry it was, for the most part, a civil war fought between Americans– Patriots and Loyalists.
