Camden in Kershaw County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
With his supply line severed, Greene’s army to the north, Marion and Lee to the southeast, and other partisans active west of Camden, Rawdon could not hold his position without risking the loss of his army. After receiving reinforcements on May 7, Rawdon tried to maneuver Greene into another battle but failed. He then decided to evacuate Camden.
“This little repulse will make no alteration in our general plan of operation.” Nathanael Greene, referring to his defeat at Hobkirk’s Hill
