The only fighting force remaining in South Carolina to oppose the advancing British were the militias — a scattered assortment of unorganized volunteer "armies." These troops varied from large groups that resembled regular organized armies to small bands of riflemen that roamed the countryside waiting for an opportunity to strike.

The two hundred Patriots who fought at Musgrove's Mill on August 19, 1780, were all militiamen, and the hit-and-run tactics used in the battle were the trademark of militias in the South Carolina Backcountry.
