Learning of the disaster at Camden, Patriot Gen. Thomas Sumter pulled his troops northward and camped at Fishing Creek near Great Falls. Lt. Col. Banastre Tarleton's mounted troops riding double caught up with Sumter's men on August 18, 1780 and overran the camp. Sumter barely escaped. Any organized force in SC was lost.
