Musgrove Mill was on the Enoree River and was also the location of a ford across the river. It is about 24 miles from our bridge at Trough Shoals. This was the site of a Patriot victory that took place on
August 19th, 1780three months before the Battle of Blackstocks. A group of Patriot militia approached a large band of Tories near the mill. The Tories were lured into attacking the Patriots and were badly beaten. More details about the battle can be read at Battle of Musgrove Mill.
