Inscription. During the American Revolution, after the fall of Charles Town in 1780, General Francis Marionís militia frequently crossed the Santee swamps and appeared at every turn near Jack's Creek and the Santee River with his men who were red, white and black.

The Patriots won independence for the colonies with the Southern Campaign.
