Additional Description: The ambush at Halfway Swamp, from a contemporary mural in Manning, South Carolina. In the story of the Revolutionary War in South Carolina, the natural environment is an important character. Francis Marion’s men, intimately familiar with the Lowcountry’s rivers, swamps, and forests, often used them to their tactical advantage. Like many sites associated with Marion, Halfway Swamp is both an ecological and a historical treasure. Courtesy Swamp Fox Mural Trail Society.
