Thank you, Swamp fox, for helping to found this country. Because you inspired Col. Mosby's guerilla tactics as he fought in the War of Northern Agression, your influence in America lasted for a great many years.

Francis Marion was born in 1732 and gained military experience in the French and Indian War. He was a lieutenant colonel in the Continental Army when he escaped capture in the 1780 fall of Charleston and became a brigadier general of militia that same year. Col. Peter Horry, who shared in the exploits that earned Marion the nickname "The Swamp Fox," wrote a manuscript biography of Marion after the war. Horry's biography was transformed into a military romance by "Parson" Mason Locke Weems, author of the George Washington cherry tree myth. That book, which was first published in 1809, and a sweet potato dinner story depicted in a widely reproduced painting made Marion into a legend

I am a direct decendant of Frances Marion. My Great Grandmother (My father's [Randolf Hooper Smith] mother's [Eleanor Charles Mellichamp]mother) was Frances Marion Pickett who I beleive was his daughter (maybe granddaughter). never-the-less. I'm proud to have someone like him in my herritage. He was also played by Mel Gibson in 'The Patriot'

It was not easy marching through the swamps, knowing that you would immediately be put to death if captured by the British. That did not stop your desire for freedom. Francis Marion is one of the bravest people who ever lived. I've heard they may build a statue of Francis in Washington DC. About time. I visited General Marions gravesite and said "thank you for my freedom".

It was an honor to visit your graveside memorial on Hywy 6 this 2007 Labor Day weekend. Thank you for your patriotism and sacrifice you gave for our freedom. The memorial does not do you justice but I still got chills up and down my spine to have been there.
