Storyboard Text

  • February 5, 1779 James Boyd, now leader of the loyalist group, set out of South Carolina, with 350 new recruits.  Later on, another man named John Moore had added another 250 men to his group while seeing them walk along to go to Georgia.
  • I hope we win with all these men.
  • February 11 1779 Two days before the official battle, the loyalists crossed over Vann's Creek just to be attacked again this time by the garrison of Cherokee ford with his reinforcements, they were repulsed so the loyalists kept going.
  • No one will stand in our way!!
  • Oh yeah?!
  • February 14, 1776 A few days later James Boyd and his men set up their camp at kettle creek not knowing what might come. Colonel Andrew Pickens, Colonel John Dooly, Lieutenant Colonel Elijah Clarke and their 340 men were planning on attacking them. 
  • You are totally right, James Boyd. The soldiers over there need it, It's the only way the patriots will come to their scenes about how good Britain is.
  •  I'm so glad we found that cattle at the top of the hill, or our men would starve to death before we fight.
  • A. Pickens, J. Dooly and E. Clarke separated their men, 200 on for Pickens on top of the hill and Dooly and Clarke's went across the swamp. But, one of Pickens men shot at a loyalist giving away their cover letting the war begin.
  • Quickly, Get out of the water!
  • Uh, oh
  • Meanwhile, Georgia militiaman had gotten lost and ended up inside the loyalists camp. Boyd was shot and injured very badly, almost to the point of death. After that the loyalists panicked because their leader was down, causing the militiamen (patriots) to kill, en-prison and inure many of them.
  • Your times up Boyd!
  • The patriots won the battle of kettle creek, very happy they'd be able to go back home. British soldiers spent so much time on trying to find someone to fight for the king but could barley scrap anything together. This war was one of the first, the start to many more patriot victories.
