Skirmish, Capt. Godfrey Dreher (Orangeburgh District Regiment of Militia) vs. British Regulars (?).


Capt. Godfrey Dreher and his family (?) drove off a detachment of "Regulars" that had been sent from Fort Granby (?) to arrest him. Problem is - Fort Granby had been taken by Lt. Col. Henry Lee on May 15th. So, perhaps Capt. Dreher's opponents were local Loyalists?
