As part of British Maj. Gen. William Phillips Apr. 1781 campaign in Virginia by the 21st he sent Lt. Col. Robert Abercrombie's Light Infantry from Barrett's Ferry, where it enters the James River, to destroy the state's naval docks, ships, warehouses, and numerous military stores along the Chickahominy River. Luckily for the Americans, most of Virginia's ships had been anchored in temporary safety up the James River at Osborne's in Chesterfield County. Abercrombie's troops accomplished the remainder of their mission including destroying naval stores held at Diascund Bridge during the night of 22 Apr., before meeting up with Phillips.
