Pickens' actual command was only McCall's Dragoons and Cunningham's riflemen (160 men). Pickens probably had no more than 400-500 men in the three regiments from Sumter's command plus 200-250 riflemen in McDowell's and Cunningham's units. Babbits' claim of a larger militia force doesn't mesh with the other primary sources.]

1 January

transfer Maryland State Regiment to Maryland Brigade (as reinforcements[footnoteRef:30]) [30: This is probably the Brown faced red reinforcements that are often mistaken as a new 2nd Maryland Regiment. A company of replacements for the Maryland line under Captain William Beatty arrived in Greene's camp December 7, 1780. Beatty had 75 replacements (rank and file) and the Maryland State Regiment had another 160 (rank and file). A large number of the Maryland State Regiment seem to have not made it to the Carolinas due to desertion and illness. This regiment DID NOT become the 2nd Maryland Regiment. The state records show that the regiment was drafted into the existing two battalions of the Maryland Continentals. ]
