The Battle of Musgrove Mill August 18, 1780
It was quite the busy day on August 18, 1780, in the English colony of South Carolina. We already know about the Battle of Fishing Creek but there was also another battle fought that same day in the English colony of South Carolina, known as the Battle of Musgrove Mill. A force of around 900 English soldiers from around the Clinton, South Carolina region and Fort Ninety Six, combated a force of brave Anishinabe soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation and lost. White casualties were 67 killed and over 100 wounded. Many other white soldiers were captured then probably killed later on by the victorious soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation. In all, the whites endured 265 casualties.
