Slipping through the night of August 18, 1780, two hundred Patriot militiamen had headed south from their camp on the Broad River, intent on attacking a similarly sized Loyalist force at Musgrove's Mill. Before sunrise the next morning, they regrouped just north of the Enoree River, only to learn that three hundred reinforcements — most of them Provincial Regulars — had swelled the Loyalist ranks during the night.Worse, the now outnumbered Patriots soon lost the advantage of surprise when a Loyalist patrol discovered their presence. Unable to retreat, the Patriots were forced to make hasty plans for battle.
