1 August. [raid] Cunningham’s Raids (Laurens County, S.C.) Lieut. Col. William Cunningham continued his raids
begun in early July. In an action, which took place on 1 August, he was more successful than hitherto. The whigs
lost 8 killed and wounded. Cunningham’s losses, if any are not known. One result of the fighting was that
Cunningham was shortly afterward able to recruit 60 more men. He continued to raid frontier areas in
September and October, after which he made his way to Charlestown.2537
