During the American Revolution, December 1780, over 750 recently arrived British fusiliers were marching from Nelson's Ferry on the Santee River. Major McLeroth's British troops from Moncks Corner joined them as an escort to Camden. General Marion's Brigade was hiding in the swamp in ambush positions near Fludd's Mill (now Elliott's Mill Pond) on River Road. Marion's Brigade began picking off the British. This harassment led to the Major's flag of truce and another bit of history and another mural.
