The Battle of Camden, in the American Revolution was one of the most crushing defeats ever inflicted upon an American army. Despite the proliferation of dysentery among his men, Continental General Horatio Gates chose to engage British General Charles Cornwallis’s force on the morning of August 16, 1780.

The illness depleted the Patriot advantage in of 2 to 1 in troop numbers, with the encounter resulting in nearly 2,000 Patriots killed or taken prisoner and heavy losses of artillery, Gates was removed from command and replaced by Nathanael Greene.

It was at the Battle of Camden that Peter Francisco emerged as a true American Hero. When the American line was collapsing, Francisco spied an American cannon, mired in mud, about to be captured by the British. Surging ahead into the fray, Francisco beat off attackers and hefted the 1,100 pound cannon barrel on his shoulders carrying it off the field of battle.

Horatio Gates was also part of the Conway Cabal, a plan spearheaded by General Thomas Conway, to discredit George Washington and have him replaced with none other than Horatio Gates.
