During the American Revolution, the militia like Marion's Brigade was totally dependent on a man with a horse and a gun who tended his farm and responded to Marion's call to arms. Marion rides this horse before battle at Black Mingo. Marion and Oscar summon farmer-soldier from his crops. These farmer-soldiers cut the supply lines, intimidated the Tories from Charleston to Camden, and thwarted and embarrassed the British from the Pee Dee to the Santee River.
