Life of General Francis Marion (1809)
by Mason Locke Weems (1809)
Musings of a retired Revolutionary officer set in print by the Parson Weems in 1809. His source, the Gen. Peter Horry who served so faithfully with "The Swamp Fox," was not happy with the fabriciations that Weems weaved around General Marion, and went to great efforts to distance himself from this book. Regardless of its factual shortcomings, this is a fine tale of courage, bravery, and cunning during the darkest hours of the American Revolution.
