1. Wagon Travel Marker
Inscription.  During the American Revolution, travel was slow and hard work. Wagons needed to stop often since wooden axles and wooden wheels required grease and maintenance. Marionís militia was documented as travelling fifty miles through the swamps at night on horseback. Most travel from Nelsons Ferry to Camden was along the Santee Path just west of here. This Patriot gives directions to Marionís camp near Jack's Creek.
 
Erected 2004 by The Citizens of Summerton, the Ardis Family and the Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society.
