14 February 1779

American militiamen defeat the British in the Battle of Kettle Creek during the American Revolutionary War. In late December 1778, a British expeditionary force led by Lt. Col. Archibald Campbell captured Savannah, Georgia. Weeks later he was joined by Brig. Gen. Augustine Prevost who assumed command of British forces in Georgia. Prevost dispatched Campbell with 1,000 troops to take control of Augusta and recruit Loyalists. While on the march toward Augusta, Campbell sent Lt. Col. John Boyd and a small British force on an expedition to recruit Loyalists in the Georgia and Carolina backcountry. By 10 February 1779, Boyd had successfully recruited around 600 men and began his march back toward Augusta. Unbeknownst to Boyd, his force was being followed by an American militia force led by Col. Andrew Pickens. On 14 February 1779, the American’s attacked Boyd’s camp along Kettle Creek. Though outnumbered the American forces were able to outflank the British, and killed Boyd in the engagement. After 90 minutes of fighting the British were forced to abandon the field, resulting in a decisive American victory. See MoreSee Less

7 February 1943

The Japanese successfully complete their withdrawal of forces from Guadalcanal in Operation Ke. In August 1942, Allied forces began their invasion of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. By the end of December, Japanese commanders decided to withdrawal their remaining forces from the island. Operation Ke—the codename for the Japanese withdrawal—began on 14 January 1943. To aid in the withdrawal, Japanese air and naval forces began an air superiority campaign. It was during this air campaign the American cruiser USS Chicago was sunk in the Battle of Rennell Island. In total, over 10,000 Japanese troops were withdrawn from the island. The final Japanese troops were evacuated on 7 February 1943, and two days later Allied forces declared the island secure, marking the end of the Guadalcanal Campaign. See MoreSee Less
