During the American Revolution, August 1780, General Francis Marion was ordered by General Gates to roam the Santee burning boats. Being successfully engaged in this task, he learned of Gates' defeat at Camden. This Patriot left his family at Scott's Lake to join Marion at nearby Nelsons Ferry. Other mounted militia join Marion on the River Road where they continued to attack British supply lines, then disappear into nearby swamps.
