During the American Revolution, the British had the best trained, best equipped military on the planet. American General Francis Marion's brigade of one-hundred and fifty tattered and penniless irregulars, some white, some black, was able to neutralize this overwhelming force by using a new technology, rifles, deployed with a strategy he developed, guerilla warfare. Marion was one of the Revolution’s boldest and most creative leaders–The Swamp Fox.
