February 14, 1779 Kettle Creek
We will continue to Augusta after camping here.
James Boyd and his men...
Meanwhile, 340 militiamen from Georgia and South Carolina ruled by Colonel Andrew Pickens, Colonel John Dooly, and Lieutenant Colonel Elijah Clarke get ready to invade Boyd's camp..
I will take my men to the rocky hill and attack from there.
Then the rest of the men will attack across the creek.
Out of nowhere, a shot fired, aiming toward the loyalist sentries... Picken's advance guard had disopeyed and began the attack.
During the attack, James Boyd and 19 men were killed.
With James Boyd down, the Loyalist panicked, fleeing across the creek to escape the battle scence.
At the end of the battle, only 7 rebel militiamen died, and 15 were wounded. 22 Loyalist were taken prisoner, and later, they surrendered to local authorities leading to another 150 prisoners. This battle gave the rebels a small victory to celebrate.
