As the Loyalists and Provincials retreated across the Enoree River, Patriot commanders began regrouping their men for another pursuit. Before they could attack, however, news came that the American Continental Army had been defeated three days earlier at the Battle of Camden.Outnumbered and unsupported, the Patriots gathered their prisoners and left Musgrove's Mill, retreating north towards safety. Nevertheless, their stunning victory here gave the Patriots momentum heading into the autumn of 1780 and the major Revolutionary War turning point at King's Mountain.[Script] "... These things are ominous - these are the damned yelling boys! - Captain Abraham De Peyster, a Provincial soldier of the King's American Regiment was clearly unnerved by the Native American battle cries used by Colonel Shelby and his Patriot forces.
