After his successful engagement at Cypress Swamp, Capt. George Cooper leading his detachment of Marion’s Patriots attacked a party of Loyalists that were holed up in a church. Once again Marion’s men were successful capturing the entire Loyalist party.

This is very likely the same engagement also known as Ashley River Church.
