While this was occurring, General Elijah Clarke gathered together four hundred women and children from Wilkes County and carried them into the mountains of eastern Tennessee for refuge. Also, there was a general exodus of fighting men from Wilkes County, to bide their time for a better day. This exodus was in small bands, harrying the British while they could. Clarke returned home a few months later, and gradually others returned, all waiting to reassemble and attack Augusta.
