Lt Col Banastre Tarleton, British Legion. Successful during the Revolutionary War, in both the Northern and Southern Campaigns.It was in the Waxhaws that Tarleton came to symbolize British cruelty in the Revolutionary War. In the Waxhaws Tarleton was seen as a "butcher" when , it was said, America forces under Buford laid down their arms in an attempt to surrender yet the British continued their assault and his reputation grew."Tarleton's quarter", in effect, came to mean "no quarter''.
