Near Camden in Kershaw County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Pursued Beyond the Battleﬁeld
“The road for some miles was strewed with the wounded and killed. The number of dead horses, broken wagons and baggage scattered on the road, formed a perfect scene of horror and confusion, such was the terror and dismay of the Americans.” Charles Stedman, British Commissary Officer
At Rugeley’s Mill, a small group of American soldiers rallied and made a valiant stand, but Tarleton drove the patriots from the site. The British cavalry chased the fugitives for a total for 22 miles before Tarleton called off the pursuit and rejoined Cornwallis.
