Notes


COURAGEOUS ACT OF MRS. DILLARD
The day before the battle at the Green Spring, in the Spartanburg district, South Carolina, "Colonel Clarke, of the Georgia volunteers, with about two hundred men, stopped at the house of Captain Dillard and were cordially welcomed to a good supply of refreshments. In the evening of the same day, Colonel Ferguson and another officer named Dunlap, with a party of Tories arrived at the same house and inquired of the mistress, if Colonel Clarke had been there, to which question she gave a direct and honest answer. He then inquired in regard to the time of Clarke's departure and the number of his men. She could not guess their number, but said that they had been gone a long time. She was then ordered to get supper, which she did, though in a less hospitable spirit than she had prepared the previous meal. While at work, she overheard some of the conversation of the officers, by which she learned that they were bent on surprising Colonel Clarke, and would start for that purpose when supper was dispatched. As soon as the food was on the table, Mrs. Dillard hurried out the back door, bridled a horse that stood in the stable, and mounting without saddle, rode till nearly daylight before reaching the Green Spring where Clarke had encamped, and where he was to be attacked by Furguson, at the break of day or sooner, as she had learned before starting.


She had just aroused the Whigs and notified them of their danger, when a detachment of two hundred picked, mounted men, commanded by Dunlap, rushed into the camp. They found their intended victims ready for the charge; were quickly driven out of the camp, and glad to escape by flight. Thus, fortunately for the friends of freedom, ended this battle, which, but for the daring of a single patriotic woman, would doubtless have resulted in the annihilation of the little band of Georgia volunteers.


From: Noble Deeds of American Women, by Jesse Clement


Mrs. Dillard was wife of Capt. Dillard, an American soldier; and the mother of Sarah Dillard; wife of Joseph Adair, Jr., another American solider. This noble woman's heroic act ought to entitle her lineal descendants to membership in patriotic organizations such as the Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution.
