On the 11th [of October] the entourage passed through Gilbert Town, where the prisoners were placed in pens while the Patriots rested. These pens, only days before, had been used by the occupying Tories to hold captured Patriots. The moment of revenge was sweet for some who gloated in their victory and taunted the prisoners. In the afternoon, the guards marched their prisoners on to the home of Colonel John Walker, who lived five miles from Gilbert Town, on the east side of Cane Creek and half a mile above its mouth. They remained in camp there on the 12th, taking liberties with the possessions, if not the personages, of the prisoners.
