During the Revolutionary War, South Carolina hosted more battles, engagements and skirmishes than any other state. 20% of all Americans who died in battle in the Revolution died in South Carolina in the last two years of the war. One of the leading Patriot fighters in that state was Francis Marion. He led a rag-tag bunch of local militia using classic guerilla warfare tactics against the British and helped turn the tide against the redcoats. Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with writer JOHN OLLER about his new history THE SWAMP FOX: HOW FRANCIS MARION SAVED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION.
