Camden in Kershaw County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Forced to Retreat
Greene withdrew three miles from the battlefield with some of Rawdon’s troops in pursuit. However, Rawdon believed that his force was too small to venture any farther from his fortifications. Later in the day he withdrew to Camden, leaving about fifty cavalrymen to hold Hobkirk’s Hill.
British losses in the battle were 38 killed, 177 wounded, and 43 missing. American casualties amounted to 25 killed, 108 wounded, and 136 missing.
“The Troops … had got into too much disorder to recover the fortune of the Day.” General Nathanael Greene
