Near Harman in Randolph County, West Virginia — The American South (Mid-Atlantic)
Tory Camps / Seneca Trail
Near Harman can still be seen remains of two Tory camps where some British sympathizers hid during the American Revolution. They encamped here, 1775-1776, to escape laws enacted against them by Virginia.
The Seneca Trail passed near here from the Tygart Valley to the South Branch Valley. Thousands of horses and cattle captured by Generals Imboden and Jones in 1863 crossed the mountains by this trail.
