He was the partisan who ran circles around the feared Banastre Tarleton, using guerilla tactics to cripple the British effort to subdue the Carolinas. Hiding out in the Low Country swamps of North and South Carolina, striking where he was least expected, Francis Marion was one of the most colorful heroes of the American Revolution. In this memoir, written by a man who served with Marion, you'll meet the real Swamp Fox. So many stories about Francis Marion's exploits have been embellished to the point of fiction. In this book, William Dobein James sets the record straight. Illustrated for the first time, James' 1821 account of this icon of America's war for independence is a classic that preserves the memory of a man who was small in stature, but who became a giant of his nation's history.
