Help for Marion's Militia, 1780-1781
Those shot or sick were left at the mercy of comrades and sympathy of Patriots. Medical care was basic, crude and herbal. Here the Militia is along the River Road for the Bridges Campaign. The “Swamp Fox” had his brave Patriots put vinegar in their water and they had less illnesses than others. Find the Fox.
