In 1780, he was among the 12 (or 14) Patriots who fought back a force of 400 British soldiers at McIntyre's Farm. The incident became known as the "Battle of The Hornets."

Charlotte then took the nickname "The Hornet's Nest," a name it still uses to this day. Graham achieved the rank of Major General.
