Francis Marion: The Swamp Fox with Dr. Steven D. Smith

During the American Revolution, a Loyalist Colonel named Robert Gray described South Carolina as "a piece of patchwork, the inhabitants of every settlement, when united in sentiment being in arms for the side they liked best and making continual inroads into one another's settlements." One of those pieces of patchwork, were the people living on and surrounding Snow's Island, South Carolina, "united in sentiment" against the British crown. This community of partisans joined the rebellion as early as 1775 and stubbornly refused to surrender, even when Charleston fell in 1780. They supplied food, forage, and blood to the rebellion, and under the leadership of General Francis Marion, became an obstacle to British control of the southern colonies. This presentation is their story.
