Job Broughton's
Revolutionary War Service


In 1775,
Job volunteered for duty in Surrey Co, NC, for a tour of six
weeks. The troop ultimately marched to Campbelltown settlement,
in NC, on the Cape Fear River, where were they were stationed
until they were discharged.
During 1775,
Job volunteered several times to go against the Tories, but the
skirmishes were each of short duration, ie., less than two weeks.
On 27 Feb 1776,
Job, along with his father and brother Jesse, fought in the
Battle at Moores Creek Bridge, in Surrey Co, NC.
In Feb 1777,
he moved to Wilkes Co, GA, re-joined the service and was
stationed at Heard's Fort (a stockade built by Stephen Heard,
in about 1774, Washington Co, GA).
Job served until 1781,
during which time he served as a Minuteman,
as a spy for 18 months,
and he participated in the Seige of Savannah.
