The Waxhaw Massacre May 29, 1780
This battle occurred near what is now Buford, South Carolina, on May 29, 1780. After learning that the Siege of Charleston had ended, a force of nearly 600 English soldiers under the command of Colonel Banastre Tarleton, who were attempting to reach Charleston, learned about a nearby force of soldiers from the Southern Anishinabe Confederation, then ordered his military force to pursue them. On May 29, 1780, they caught up to the Indian and black military force or innocent Indian civilians, then commenced to battle them. Historians claim that a massacre followed. Evidently one of the two groups (the Indian) raised up a white flag as a means to let their foe know they intended to surrender. Instead of accepting their surrender the white soldiers commenced to fire upon the Indians who were attempting to surrender to them. In the battle that followed, over 200 Indians may have been killed. White casualties were 118 killed and 162 wounded. This military engagement has suspicion written all over it.
