Britain's capture of Charles Towne in May 1780 marked the low point of American hopes for independence. The British would simply move north until they controlled all thirteen colonies. The only thing standing in their way was the frontier region known as the South Carolina Backcountry. Here some of the harshest fighting would take place and, here, British plans would begin to unravel.

Around 1774, Edward Musgrove had built his home and gristmill on the Enoree River. By the summer of 1780, he and his family would be wrapped up in events they could not have foreseen.
