America's First Guerilla Fighters

Ever elusive, Francis Marion and his men appeared out of the gloom of the swamps to attack the British, only to disappear as quickly as they came. With little equipment and less ammunition, a small band of backwoodsmen carried on a private war with the British redcoats in South Carolina during the American Revolution.

Led by Francis Marion, this group of guerilla fighters struck fear into the hearts of the British as, time and time again, they ambushed British soldiers and knocked out a string of their forts before disappearing mysteriously into the swamps. Marion's unorthodox tactics infuriated the British, who were more used to set battles in open ground. The redcoat soldiers became terrified of the unexpected and swift attacks by this little band of irregulars and, demoralized, were eventually driven from the South.


About the Landmark series:
For over half a century, Landmark books have been an important part of home libraries. Jam-packed with exciting stories and adventures, the Landmark series is known as the first historical series for kids. Teaching parents continue to trust the Landmark name to engage their children with accurate information on well-known people and interesting periods in American history. The variety of subjects; action-filled, story-like narratives; large and clear print; and reasonable prices make the Landmark series an excellent and enjoyable way to learn more about history.
Extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s, while these are all secular titles the fact that they were written as many as fifty years ago ensures their wholesomeness, as much as any book pertaining to the lives of mortal men can be wholesome.
