ARP274 Greene Takes Command
Major General Nathanael Greene takes command of the southern army in December 1780. General Horatio Gates heads home, leaving a decimated and demoralized army. Greene, supported by Major Generals Von Steuben and Greenwood, along with General Daniel Morgan, divides his forces and prepares to fight a guerilla war in the Carolinas against the British under General Charles Cornwallis. Morgan begins the new phase of the war with a massacre of loyalists near Hammond’s Store in South Carolina.
