    Default Bees in American History - October 3rd

    North Carolina - October 3rd, 1780

    The Battle of the Bees

    After a week in Charlotte, Lt. Gen. Charles Cornwallis needed to send out foraging parties to replenish his supplies. A large foraging party of 450 Provincials under the command of Capt. John Doyle moved out of Beattie's Ford Road with sixty wagons. A local boy notified the McIntyre family that the Loyalists were coming.

    Then, the boy rode on and informed Capt. James Thompson of the local militia. Capt. Thompson quickly rounded up Capt. James Knox and thirteen farmers to harrass Capt. Doyle's troops, and then hid the riflemen in two locations at the McIntyre farm.

    If he needed supplies he should have tried to trade on Tryon or try on Trade.
