South Carolina and the American Revolution: A Battlefield History
An estimated one-thrid of all combat actions in the American Revolution took place in South Carolina. From the partisan clashes of back-country’s war for the hearts and minds of settlers to bloody encounters with Native Americans on the fronteir to pitched battles between Continentals and British regulars, more battles were fought in South Carolina than in any other of the original thirteen states. In South Carolina and the American Revolution, John W. Gordon illustrates how these encounters, fought between 1775 and 1783, were critical to winning the struggle that secured American independence from Great Britain. John W. Gordon is a professor of national security affairs at the United States Marine Corps Command and Staff College in Quantico, Virginia. Formerly a professor of history and dean of undergraduate studies at the Citadel, he is the author of The Other Desert War: British Special Forces in North Africa, 1940-1943.
