The Revolutionary War Trust's (formerly Campaign 1776) map of the Battle of Hanging Rock 

Colonel Thomas Sumter and Major William Richardson Davie attack and defeat a larger British force. Sumter technically withdraws first at the end of the battle, but not after inflicting lopsided and severe casualties to the British force. Hanging Rock was enormously helpful in the Patriots' efforts in loosening the British stranglehold on the Southern Theater.
