Camden in Kershaw County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Action at Logtown
“At sun rise … had a smart skirmish, Beat in the Enemy.” Capt. Robert Kirkwood
Kirkwood attacked at 10p.m. and after a two-hour battle drove out the British troops, who remained nearby and exchanged fire with the Delaware soldiers throughout the night.
The Americans repulsed a British counterattack at dawn on April 20. Greene arrived shortly afterward with the rest of the army, but abandoned Logtown in favor of a stronger position on Hobkirk’s Hill.
