'Legends & Lies' PREVIEW: Meet the Father of Modern Guerrilla Warfare
Don't miss the next episode of the hit docu-series Legends & Lies on Sunday at 8:00pm ET on Fox News Channel!
In Legends & Lies: The Patriots, you get to see the American Revolution, as it really happened.
On last week's episode, we saw the real story of America's most infamous traitor: Benedict Arnold.
Now, you'll be introduced to a story you may not be as familiar with. It's the story of Francis Marion, the father of modern guerrilla warfare.
The ingenuity and innovation of a few daring soldiers created a new type of warfare that tipped the scales in favor of the American Patriots.
Rallying local civilians, Marion led a guerilla assault on the British - earning the nickname "Swamp Fox."
The often-overlooked military officer halted the British advance in the South, forcing them to retreat north ... toward General Washington and his waiting army at Yorktown.
