- Archaeologists looking for treasuries of Revolutionary War hero
The State [USA], Apr. 13, 2007
Searchers found a brass candleholder, a small British cannonball along
with rifle shot and horse gear. It may not seem like much, but for those
looking for hideaways of the state's craftiest Revolutionary War hero,
it's a treasure trove. Francis Marion was known as the Swamp Fox for
hiding in Lowcountry bogs while organizing attacks on the British. His
hideouts still are a mystery. But now archaeologists are opening up one
site where Marion may have slept for a few weeks in 1780. "The case gets
built up to 'Gee, this looks pretty darn good,' " archaeologist Steven
Smith said. "It's as good as it gets for Francis Marion."
