On November 21st, the North Carolina Fifth Provincial Congress again established two new regiments (battalions) of Militia due to yet another anticipated British invasion of North Carolina that never materialized. These two new regiments were placed under Brigadier General Allen Jones of the Halifax District Brigade of Militia, and they ended up spending most of their time in South Carolina.

On November 26th, the Provincial Congress authorized three more new regiments for the NC Continental Line and all officers are commissioned soon thereafter. Since Major General Charles Lee was recalled to the north, Brigadier General James Moore was given temporary command of the Southern Department of the Continental Army, and he was headquartered in Charlestown, SC.

By now, the Bogue Inlet Independent Company and the Cape Fear Independent Company were both discharged.
