Epigraph
"To the honor and glory of Francis Marion and his men who under extreme hardships did such valiant service for the independence of their Country in the War of the American Revolution."
--MEMORIAL TABLET AT GEORGETOWN, SOUTH CAROLINA, ERECTED BY GEORGETOWN CHAPTER, D.A.R.
Dedication
To
MARGOT
who with me, from the PeeDee, Snow's Island
and Georgetown to Belle Isle, the Santee,
Monck's Corner and Charleston re-
traced the pathways trod by
FRANCIS MARION
First words
A clumsy ship's boat rolled lazily in the wave-crinkled, deep-blue waters of the Gulf Stream, miles from the nearest land. The tropical sun of mid-afternoon beat down like the blast from an open furnace.
Quotations
Chapter I
"The ship in which he sailed foundered at sea from injuries received from the stroke of a whale of the thorn-back species. Her crew, six in number, escaped in the jolly boat saving nothing but their lives." --W. G. Simms.
Chapter II
"Your miserable body shall be consumed by fire and your impious ashes scattered to the winds of heaven."
--Edict of Expulsion.
Chapter III
"Thrown upon their own thoughts, taught by observation and experience, the same results of character -- firmness, temperance, good sense, sagacious foresight, and deliberate prudence -- become conspicuous in the career of both Marion and George Washington." -- W. G. Simms.
Chapter IV
"The emergency was pressing and Governor Lyttleton called out the militia of the Province. They were requested to rendezvous at the Congarees, about 140 miles from Charleston. To this rendezvous Marion repaired, in a troop of provincial cavalry commanded by one of his brothers." -- Wm Dobein James.
Chapter V
"Scarcely had the detachment penetrated the defile when the war whoop gave the signal. The savages, still concealed, poured in a deadly fire by which no less than twenty-one of this fated band were prostrated." -- Horry Memoirs.
