C. Brattonsville

Choosing Sides

In June 1780, the British had established an "outpost" at Rocky Mount, in the Catawba Valley. Lieutenant Colonel George Turnbull sent troops into what are now York and Chester counties to round up and eliminate the rebels. Captain Christian Huck, a loyalist from Philadelphia, was the leader. This battle became known as the "Battle at Williamson's Plantation" or "Huck's Defeat."
