The Marylanders were ordered south in April 1780 to reinforce the garrison at Charleston, South Carolina. The New Jersey Brigade, just back from guard posts near the British lines, moved into the Maryland huts for the next three weeks.

The Jersey troops were relieved by the Continental Line, which moved into this area in May. Although the weather had improved, the rations had not. Two hungry Connecticut regiments mutinied here on May 25, 1780. Washington declared that the mutiny gave him "infinitely more concern than any thing that ever happened."
