HAMMOND, Le Roy, soldier, born in Richmond county, Virginia, about 1740; died about 1800. In 1765 he removed to Georgia, and thence to South Caroline, where he became a dealer in tobacco. He was commissioned a colonel early in the Revolutionary war, served in the "Snow" campaign, and in that of 1776 against the Cherokees, in which he distinguished himself. He was subsequently often employed both by congress and the state of South Carolina as Indian agent. In 1779 he took the field with his regiment and played an important part in the battle of Stono Ferry. After the fall of Charleston he adopted, like Marion and others, a desultory mode of warfare, and was constantly engaged in fighting the loyalists, British, and Indians. In 1781 he was at the siege of Augusta, afterward at that of Ninety-Six, serving under Greene, and, later, under General Pickens. After the battle of Eutaw he was active in guerilla warfare. Colonel Hammond ranked high as a partisan leader.
