23 - Fair Lawn Plantation
27 November 1781
Brig. Gen. Francis Marion sent Lt. Col. Hezekiah Maham with 180 of his men plus 200 men from Cols. Shelby and Sevier to Fair Lawn Plantation. The main house, too formidable to take, they decided to attack one of the outbuildings, a British hospital. Col. Shelby’s riflemen covered the redoubt while Lt. Col. Maham’s cavalry rode up to the building and demanded its surrender. The defenders offered no resistance. Maham captured 300 stands of arms, 150 patients and staff, 80 of which could walk and were taken back to Brigadier General Marion's camp, the rest paroled. The hospital was burned.
