Swamp Fox

Manning and a couple of other nearby towns in South Carolina have murals dedicated to the Swamp Fox courtesy of the Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society.

 

The Swamp Fox was Colonel Francis Marion who, despite having a badly broken ankle, led a band of irregular militia against the British in South Carolina in 1780-81. With only a small number of troops Marion had to improvise and essentially adopted guerilla warfare tactics.
