The American Battlefield Trust’s map of the Revolutionary War Battle of Blackstock's Farm on November 20, 1780
Following the British defeat at Kings Mountain, the much loathed Banastre Tarleton was recalled from chasing the "Swamp Fox," Francis Marion, and ordered to engage General Thomas Sumter's forces. Sumter's force of roughly 1,000 men was threatening the vital British outpost at Ninety Six, South Carolina. Tarleton's and Sumter's forces clashed on the farm of William Blackstock, where Sumter, although severely wounded in the fighting, bested Tarleton.
