This book documents a part of the Southern Campaign of the American Revolution immediately after the Race to the Dan and leading up to the Battle at Guilford Courthouse. The period between February and March 1781 was an important time for North Carolina as well as America as a whole. Patriot forces continued to skirmish with British Gen Cornwallis. Although none of these events were paramount or decisive, they illustrated the fortitude of the American Spirit. This strong resolve sent a clear message to the British that the patriots would rather fight than remain logy to the King. Read about Hart's Mill, Pyle's Defeat, Clapp's Mill and Weitzel's Mill. Learn what occurred, the issues and impacts surrounding each of these unique events. The title of this book comes from a letter written by Col. Otho Williams to Gen Greene describing Cornwallis' tactics during this time period, detailing one of the many aspects that are fully documented in this book.
