During the American Revolution, November 1780, Colonel Tarleton with his Green Dragoons hunted General Marion. Tarleton encamped at the late General Richardson's home. Marion was warned by the widow's son and quickly withdrew to the east of Jack's Creek near Richbourg's Mill.
Learning that General Marion had slipped away, Tarleton gave chase. Marion and his militia, staying just ahead of the Dragoons and fighting a series of delaying actions, rode to the head of Jack's Creek, down the Pocotaligo River and slipped away to Benbow's Ferry.
