05 - Ball's Plantation - Wambaw
6 May 1780
At about 9 o'clock a.m., Patriot Capt. Baylor Hill and his troop found the British detachment at Elias Ball, Sr.’s Plantation, and only one Redcoat fired before the remainder quickly surrendered. Capt. Hill had to restrain his men from hacking the British to death because of their recent encounter with Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton at Moncks Corner. They were marched to Lenud's Ferry where they were to meet up with the remainder of their regiment under the command of Lt. Col. Anthony Walton White.
