Inscription
Early on August 19, 1780, a small detachment of mounted Patriot militiamen fled up this hillside with Loyalist and Provincial forces hot on their heels. Minutes earlier, those same Patriots, commanded by Captain Shadrack Inman, had charged down the hill to attack the British forces camped at the Musgrove home on the far side of the Enoree River.As the British returned fire, the outnumbered Patriots retreated, appearing to wither under intense opposition. Instead , the British were being lured into a deadly trap.
