Burwell & Rebecca (Puckett) Spence of Carroll County VA

Burwell was drafted into the Revolution in 1781 in Surry County, North Carolina near the end of the War. He served 3 months and was discharged honorably. He was in the front line of militia in the Battle of Eutaw Springs, SC. He then moved to Montgomery County, Virginia, where he was drafted again in 1782 for another tour. He was stationed at Fort Whitten in present day, Tazewell County, VA. Upon his 2nd honorable discharge he moved to Ashe County, North Carolina. After 5 years he returned to Montgomery County, VA, which was then the Grayson County area, which later became Carroll County in 1842, where he resided until his death.

From pension application in 1843

" Not long after joining General Greene's forces, we marched upon and gave battle to the British at the Eutaw Springs. Here we had hard fighting. General Greene's army was drawn up in two lines. As near as I can remember the first was the militia, and the other line were Continental troops. The militia fell in with a party of the British in advance of the main body, who we continued to pursue and fired upon until the fight became lost, and the whole militia line were forced to fall back. The Continental line charged the British and compelled them to give way in all directions, and Colonel Campbell fell mortally wounded when leading in the charge."
