Text:

During the American Revolution, 1780, General Marion and the men of his Brigade pushed back the British forces in the Black and Santee River Basins. It is unlikely that they thought they would be remembered by future generations. It may be that Marion never lived long enough to know he was called the “Swamp Fox”. Today we appreciate the effort these brave Americans put forth to make this the “land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Erected 2011 by Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society.
