After being elected to the new State General Assembly, as well as for other reasons, Thomas Sumter again resigned, this time for good. Col. William Henderson was commissioned as brigadier general and took over Sumter's Brigade for the remainder of the war.

Jehu Postell was commissioned as a full Colonel and given command of the Georgetown District Regiment (militia).

After the murder of Col. Joseph Hayes, James Dillard became colonel and commander of the Little River District Regiment (militia).

John Sanders was commissioned as a full Colonel and given command of the Colleton County Regiment (militia). William Skirvin had been elected to the SC House of Representatives and served in the 4th General Assembly that met in Jacksonborough in January and February of 1782. It is unclear if he retook command of the Colleton County Regiment at the end of that assembly, or if Col. John Sanders retained command.

As of the end of January of 1782, John Mathews was now the new governor of South Carolina.
