Further Information

By 1779 the British had adopted a  ‘Southern Strategy’ which sought to control the Southern States (North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia) by isolating them from the more northerly regions of New England and New York.  The strategy assumed that, by controlling the important ports of Charlestown[1] (Heritage Charts A308), Savannah (Heritage Charts A301 and A304), Port Royal (Heritage Charts A301, A304 and A306), St Augustin (Heritage Charts A414) and others, the Colonial army would be starved of funds and supplies coming-in from overseas.
