At Hobkirk's Hill the American army numbered between 1,200 and 1,500 men. Col. Otho Holland Williams's brigade held the left of the line. It consisted of two Maryland Continental regiments commanded by Col. John Gunby and Lt. Col. Benjamin Ford, along with 40 Delaware Continentals under Capt. Robert Kirkwood.

On the right, Brigadier General Isaac Huger led two regiments of Virginia Continentals under Lt. Cols. Samuel Hawes and Richard Campbell.

Each of the four Continental regiments fielded about 250 officers and men.

These units were supported by Col. Charles Harrison's three pieces of artillery, Lt. Col. William Washington's Continental cavalry, and Col. James Read's regiment of North Carolina militia.
