Additional Description: No contemporary artist ever painted a portrait of Marion, but this 19th century engraving comes close to the description written by William Dobein James, a teenage soldier in his brigade:
"He was rather below the middle stature of men, lean and swarthy. His body was well set but his knees and ankles were badly formed; and he still limped upon one leg. He had a countenance remarkably steady; his nose was aquiline, his chin projecting; his forehead large and high, and his eyes black and piercing. He was now forty-eight years of age, but still even at this age, his frame was capable of enduring fatigue and every privation, necessary for a partisan."
