In the darkest days of the American Revolution, Francis Marion and his band of militia freedom fighters kept hope alive for the patriot cause during the critical British southern campaign. Like the Robin Hood of legend, Marion and his men attacked from secret hideaways before melting back into the forest or swamp. Employing insurgent tactics that became commonplace in later centuries, Marion and his brigade inflicted losses on the enemy that were individually small but cumulatively a large drain on British resources and morale.

Fantastic account of the swamp fox's life! Lot of history facts that typically not taught in schools. Plenty of information on the South Carolina colony and the skirmishes and battles fought during the Revolutionary War. Great Book!!!!
