Cultural resource investigations were undertaken the former U.S. Coast Guard Loran station on Folly Island. This area was used as a primary staging area for Federal forces prior to their assault on Morris Island and Battery Wagner in 1863. Civil War archaeological remains were identified throughout the tract and the entire project area was defined as a significant archaeological site. During this project Brockington and Associates worked closely with the Savannah District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston County Parks and Recreation, and the South Carolina SHPO.

1994: Archaeological survey, testing, and evaluation of the Confederate Secessionville earthworks, batteries, and camps, James Island, South Carolina.

Cultural resource investigations were carried out within the Martschink real estate development tract on James Island. This tract was a focal point during the Charleston campaign and the site of the 1862 Battle of Secessionville. This project showed that significant Civil War surface batteries and subsurface deposits were present within the tract. During the course of this project, Brockington and Associates coordinated closely with the real estate developer, the Town of James Island, the South Carolina Coastal Council, the South Carolina Heritage Trust, the South Carolina Battleground Preservation Trust, and the South Carolina SHPO.

1995: Cultural Resources Survey of Historic Cemeteries, Allatoona Lake, Georgia.

Intensive archival research and field survey was conducted to identify all cemeteries and human remains within Army Corps of Engineers land at Lake Allatoona. Once identified, archaeological methods were utilized to delineate the boundaries of each cemetery. Individual grave locations were transit mapped and GPS data was recorded for each. As a component of this study, an evaluation was made for potential of Civil War soldier remains at Allatoona Pass. Brockington worked with the Mobile District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, local historical societies, Allatoona Lake staff, and the Georgia SHPO.
