As far as I can tell, there was no "Battle of Adams Run," although there were a couple of battles, Pocotaligo and Johns Island, in the area.  However, Henry did not die in battle.

The file for payment of funds owing to his widow, Susan, contains the following:

Page 15
"Died of typhoid fever at the hospital at Adams Run, South Carolina on "7 June 1862.""

Page 16 (Front)
Treasury Office, 2nd Auditor's Office,

In different handwriting:

How do y'all add military information to ID'S, with out manually doing it , I have had others add it and it looks so much nicer then just adding what you find out down.  It's hard for me to explain but what I mean is just adding the site when you find information,  I'm sorry I can't explain it any better, Thanks
Donnie, I'll add the info I found for you and also set up the Civil War taplate for you.  Then you will see how it is done.
Thank's have a Great Night.

Thank you and if you know the picture is him you can add it to the profile..
I think I did that right.  I put a copy of a fold3 Compiled Military Service Record on Henry Trotter's profile.

Does anyone know the names and birth or death of Henry's children I question the one named Elizabeth I believe from talks with other family that Elizabeth Trotter maybe his brother Williams daughter. Thanks for any help
Henry Trotter most definitely died of typhoid fever at a hospital at Adams Run, South Carolina.  Adams Run is likely a small town close by.  A Certified document in the State of South Carolina, Pickens Dictrict is on, showing his widow to be Susan.

The Certificate of Death of son Robert Griffin Trotter, Pickens County, on lists Susan Hendricks as mother’s maiden name.
What else you have on Robert Griffin Trotter
