of General Francis Marion
on this lapel pin with memorial card:
In the American Revolution, Francis Marion stepped forward
with little but his passion for liberty and strength of Intellect.
He led a force of patriots that set the stage for the British defeat at Yorktown.
Loved by his followers, respected by his enemies,
he is one of the foremost heroes of our War for Independence.
Known as the Swamp Fox for taking refuge in the forests and swamps,
he is considered one of the fathers of modern guerilla warfare and
credited in the lineage of the United States Army Rangers.
©2008 A miniature of the 2nd SC, Marion Crest from the leather helmet is the newer lapel pin.
