One source claims this happened on March 8th.
the Revolutionary War, British troops occupied the plantation
of Isaac McPherson (described as a great Rebel, a man of
property in contemporary reports) in March of 1780, after
unsuccessfully trying to chase down fifty Patriot troops on horseback.
During their stay, the British engaged in what they thought was
a skirmish with the enemy, but mistakenly attacked their own
troops. These friendly forces were under Major Charles Cochrane
and the American Volunteers with Major Patrick Ferguson, who
was wounded slightly.
