  • Who?
  • What?
  • When?
  • The Battle of Camden pitted Major General Horatio Gates against a small British field force commanded by Lieutenant General (Charles Lord Cornwallis). Major General Horatio was important because he was the one that made everything go wrong, he didn't give his troops the best artillery and some weren't even fully trained.
  • Where?
  • The outcome was that the British won and they gained a win and respect on the colonists. The American military lost lots of troops in a horrible way and the American military lost a humiliating battle. Probably most humiliating battle in American history.
  • Why?
  • The battle of Camden took place during the American Revolutionary War (April 19, 1775- September 3, 1783). The exact date of the battle of Camden was on August 16, 1780.
  • How?
  • The location of this battle was at Kershaw County, north of Camden, South Carolina. Nearby cities were Elgin, Cassatt, Abney Crossroads, Bethune, Westville, Gaston Mill, Kirkley Mill, Barfield Mill, and Liberty Mill.
  • This battle was relevant because “After the disastrous loss at Camden, Gates was removed from command and replaced by Nathanael Greene (1742-86). A second clash at Camden, the Battle of Hobkirk’s Hill, took place on April 25, 1781. Although a technical victory for the British, they abandoned Camden the following month” (History.com) This quote shows that after Horatio Gates was kicked out from his role, Congress got a better general that will really help them in future wars.
  • This event impacted the colonists because it showed them that the British are really strong even when we outnumber them by having double the troops they have. The British feel great, they see that they can still easily take back and keep on ruling the colonists during The American Revolutionary War, but that is not what quite happens when George Washington comes to help in the future.
