Clarke states that he and his troops recently invaded and burned numerous Indian towns and settlements (probably Cherokee), killed over forty Indians, and destroyed several hundred bushels of corn and supplies. Two white men were also taken prisoner from the Indian towns. It is likely that this military action was associated with the Revolutionary War effort.
