Long Description:

British Redcoats under command of British Gen. Cornwallis and the “butcher” Banastre Tarleton matched wits with elements of American General Nathanael Greene’s army at Clapp’s Mill on Beaver Creek, March 2, 1781, two weeks before the Battle at Guilford Courthouse. The harrassing reconnoiter that occurred here resulted in the death of 17 British and 8 American soldiers.
