Pursued by British Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton, the Marquis de Lafayette camped just west of here near Corbin's Bridge on 2 June during the campaign of 1781. Commanding more than 3,000 Continental soldiers and militia, Lafayette sought to move northward and link up with Brig. Gen. Anthony Wayne's approximately 1,000 Continentals who were heading south from Pennsylvania. On 3 June, Gen. Charles Cornwallis ordered Tarleton to Charlottesville on a raid. Tarleton broke off his pursuit of Lafayette and nearly captured Gov. Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville the following day.
