Eyewitnesses said the Virginians were throwing down their guns and trying to surrender when the British soldiers, led by Colonel Tarleton, began hacking them to death with their swords. Another 150 men were treated for severe injuries in a nearby church…many not surviving the week. Patriot Colonel Buford admits defeat. Britain claims victory over South Carolina. Ulster Scots from the upstate and mountains are incensed and vow to hold the lobster backs accountable. History reveals they made true on their word within the year.
