Francis Marion (February 26, 1732-February 27, 1795) was a farmer from South Carolina and a lieutenant colonel in the Continental Army. Marion is best known for the hit-and-run tactics he employed against British troops during the American Revolutionary War. These tactics earned him the nickname of "the Swamp Fox," and also a place in the annals of history as one of the fathers of guerrilla warfare.
