The Papers of General Nathanael Greene

To General Alexander Lillington.

Has "recent intelligence" that the British are marching toward Guilford Court House; believes "this Army is their principal object."[1] Lillington must hurry his march and follow the "main Army" across the Haw River Bridge to join NG.[2]

    [1. ]See Williams to NG, first letter of this date (PGNG, 7: 282).
    [2.] When Lillington had not joined the army by 13 February, NG decided that it was too risky to attempt a junction and ordered him to head east, to Cross Creek. (See NG to Butler, 13 February, PGNG, 7: 284.)
