The Battle of Fishing Creek August 18, 1780
Still on the offensive to regain their South Carolina colony, the English ordered a force of 960 of their soldiers under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton, to search for Indian and black camps or simple villages, to wage war on them. Near what is now the city of Fishing Creek, South Carolina, the English military force of nearly 1,000 soldiers found either a Southern Anishinabe Confederation military camp or just a simple Indian village, and commenced to launch a surprise attack. Though the Indians had been surprised by the English assault upon their camp, they quickly grouped to defend themselves from the surprise attack from their white enemies. However, they were not capable of driving off the more numerous English military force, which resulted in large numbers of the Indians surrendering to the English military force. White casualties in the battle were significant and included over 200 killed and wounded. Indian casualties were significant as well, but most managed to escape from their white enemies who certainly would have killed them if they had captured them. The English military force did capture around 300 Indians who were probably killed later on.
