The Day the British Took Beaufort


Author(s):
Abstract:
Jean Kell, who was doing research in the North Carolina State Archives, discovered a new and unknown chapter in the state's history. One year after Cornwallis surrendered at Yorktown and before the peace treaty was signed, the last battle of the Revolutionary War was fought at Beaufort in Carteret County in April 1782. Kell recounts the battle which ended just seven years, lacking a day, from the opening battle on April 18, 1775.
