On May 21, 1782, Colonel Brown marched out of Savannah in strong force to confront rapidly advancing Wayne. The latter got between Brown and Savannah, attacked him at midnight, and routed the whole party. This event occurred on the Ogeechee road, about 4 miles southwest of Savannah. The vanguard of the Americans was composed of sixty horsemen and twenty infantry, led by Col. Anthony Walton White.
