Near Hudson`s Ferry, about four miles east of Newington, General Augustine Prevost in command of 4000 British regulars made headquarters and constructed redoubts in February, 1779. The complete occupation of Georgia was directed and effected from this point.

General Prevost, cleverly masking his troop movements, left Hudson`s Ferry March 1st, 1779 with 1500 of His Majesty`s best troops. He encircled General Ashe`s Continentals and North Carolina Militia of 2300 men at the Freeman-Miller Bridge, attacked them from the rear and practically destroyed them.
