army of two 3

The annihilation of the so-called Grand Army at the battle of Camden, 1780. The Continental Army and militia forces of General Gates - hero of Saratoga - engaged Earl Charles Cornwallis’s numerically inferior British and Loyalist army near Camden, South Carolina, on August 16 1780. Almost two thirds of Gates’ 3,700-strong army was killed, wounded or captured in the ensuing battle, at a cost of just over 300 Crown Forces casualties.
