On this site, located about 112 mile northeast, at least five hundred Loyalists under the command of Major Micajah Ganey laid down their arms in accordance with a previous agreement made between Francis Marion and Ganey. This treaty, signed June 8, 1782, at Burch´s Mill on the Pee Dee River, ended the partisan warfare in the area.
