During the American Revolution, Puddin' Swamp and the Black River were on the frontier. Brave and adventurous pioneer families settled on the higher ground near the Rivers. Pioneers cooked over open fires, grew their food, tapped pines for rosin and poled supplies on the rivers. General Francis Marion was totally dependent on farmers who responded to his call to arms. Here we see Marion visiting a farmer-soldier family.
