Lord Rawdon commanded less than 950 men at Hobkirk's Hill. The majority were American Loyalists in the Volunteers of Ireland (140), the King's American Regiment (160), New York Volunteers (160), the South Carolina Royalists (130), and Major John Coffin's dragoons (60). There was also a company of 40 Loyalist riflemen.

The British 63rd Regiment numbered 180 men, and Rawdon combed the hospital at Camden for another 50 soldiers whom he considered well enough to fight. They were formed into a company designated "Convalescents."

A detachment of the Royal Artillery with two six-pounder cannon supported Rawdon's troops.
