Charleston Campaign

  • Time Period: March 29- May 12, 1780
  • Area: Charleston, South Carolina
  • Explanation: ??

The 2 engagements at Charleston, South Carolina, are reflected on a single streamer. The first campaign blunted the British threat in the southern theater for 3 years, and the second, while a defeat for the Americans, did not result in a cessation of hostilities in the south. Guerrillas began to harry British posts and lines of communications, and the American grass roots strength began once again to assert itself and to deny the British the fruits of military victory won in the field.
