14 - Strawberry Ferry
16 July 1781
A woman told SC Patriot militia Col. Wade Hampton “that two sloops had landed a short distance up the river with British soldiers, and they were in the cornfield getting roasting corn and beans.” Hampton had some of his men dismount and “run into the vessels.” One British officer was killed. Hampton had his men search the fields for foragers and they captured 30 prisoners. They paroled the British soldiers and burned the two sloops loaded with indigo.
