FRANCIS MARION – REVOLUTIONARY WAR HERO
Some may remember seeing Leslie Nielsen play Francis Marion in the Disney series Swamp Fox. Although it never grew as popular as the Davy Crockett series, Disney produced several episodes about General Marion in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Francis Marion is also one of the historical figures used to create the composite character played by Mel Gibson in the film The Patriot, released in 2000.
