Camden in Kershaw County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Americans Return
Greene knew that if Cornwallis followed him, North Carolina would be fairly secure. Should Cornwallis not return to South Carolina, Greene saw an opportunity to strike the British posts scattered across that state. He ordered the partisan leaders to gather their men and be ready to cooperate with the Continental Army.
Cornwallis chose not to follow Greene; instead he marched to Virginia, leaving Lord Rawdon to contend with Greene’s invasion.
“All these considerations have determined me to change my route, and push directly into South Carolina.” Nathanael Greene
