Tarrar’s Spring, South Carolina
"The Bloody Scout" 16 November 1781
Captain Stirling Turner continued to pursue Colonel Williams and the "Bloody Scout". With Turner was Captain James Butler, who had recently been released from captivity in Charlestown.
Turner chased the Loyalists to Tarrar’s Spring. An exchange of shots occurred at the spring, but soon ended when both sides decided to negotiate. Turner’s militia agreed to let the Loyalists leave the area unharmed if they return the cattle they had stolen. Williams agreed to this and quickly departed the area.
