This chapter examines the South Carolina Assembly meeting on August 7 and the reasons behind their wholehearted support for another expedition to North Carolina. Barnwell had to have felt insulted by North Carolina's demand that the army be led by anyone other than him, but even he supported a second expedition. South Carolina traders should encourage the Indians to volunteer for the expedition, he said, and asked that special attention be given to the Waccamaws and Cape Fear Indians. But Indians were not enough, Barnwell advised, as they would never attack a fort. To take such strongholds as the ones the Tuscaroras had prepared, a force of colonial militia would be needed.
