Description - The Life of Francis Marion by William Gilmore Simms
South Carolina s Swamp Fox, Francis Marion, is one of the most celebrated figures of the American Revolution. Marion s cunning exploits in the Southern theater of the Revolution earned him national renown and a place in history as an American hero and master of modern guerilla warfare. Although dozens of works have been written about Marion s life over the years, this biography -- written by William Gilmore Simms, South Carolina s greatest author -- remains the best. First published in 1844, The Life of Francis Marion was Simms s most commercially successful work of nonfiction. It offers a treatment of Marion s life that is unparalleled in its scope and accuracy, all in Simms s inimitable style."
