Battle of Musgrove Mill -August 1780

South Carolina State Historic Site

This battle between 200 Patriot militia and a joint force of 200 Loyalist militia and 300 British Provincial troops was a surprising Patriot victory and a major turning point during the Revolutionary War. This victory boosted the failing morale of South Carolina Patriots and dispelled the British high command’s belief that they had crushed all Patriot resistance following the major Patriot defeats at Camden on August 16, 1780 and Fishing Creek on August 18, 1780.
