Ramsour’s Mill Report


1000 Tories under Lt. Col. John Moore and Maj. Nicholas Welch were gathered here to receive arms and training. They were attacked by a force of 500 militiamen under Col. Francis Locke and Maj. Joseph McDowell. After more than an hour’s fighting, mostly hand-to-hand, the Tories fled. 100 were estimated to have been dead and wounded on each side, and 50 Tories were captured. (Lincoln)
