Romancing the Swamp Fox

J. L. Bell has dug up a wonderful item, which he shares at Boston 1775.  It’s a letter from Peter Horry to that notorious disseminator of spurious anecdotes, Mason Weems, regarding the liberties Weems took with material Horry supplied for a biography of Francis Marion.

Thank God Horry didn’t live long enough to see The Patriot.
