The Southern Campaign was critical in determining the outcome of the American Revolutionary War. After setbacks in the North, the British strategy was to win the conflict by concentrating their forces in the southern states. The strategy depended upon the assumption that many southerners remained loyal to the British. American loyalist support never matched expectations, however, and by 1781 the Southern Strategy failed to prevent British defeat in the war.
