3 March

The Battle of Brier Creek was an American Revolutionary War battle fought on this day in 1779 near the confluence of Brier Creek with the Savannah River in eastern Georgia.

A Patriot force consisting principally of militia from North Carolina and Georgia was surprised, suffering significant casualties. The battle occurred only a few weeks after a resounding American Patriot victory over the British at Kettle Creek, north of Augusta, reversing its effect on morale.
