Taken from a pamphlet published by the SC Dept. of Parks, Recreation and Tourism titled "South Carolina: Major Sites of the Revolution" "Musgrove's Mill is the site of a battle fought on August 18, 1780, which was a fine example of Patriot strategy. A considerable body of Tories and Provincial regulars under the command of Colonel Alexander Innes was posted at Musgrove's Mill on the south side of Enoree River to guard the ford there. A small party of Patriots under Captain Shadrack Inman was sent as a decoy to draw the British into an ambush north of the river at the top of the ridge, where the main Whig force under Isaac Shelby, Elijah Clark and James Williams had erected a breastwork. The result was a complete rout of the Royal forces. The site, which is under development as a State Historic Site, is located west of SC 56 at the Union-Laurens county line on both banks of the Enoree River."
