HEROES AND HEROINES OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION (Series)

 

THE FIGHTING GAMECOCK

Thomas Sumter 1734-1832

by Idella Bodie

Thomas Sumter was a leader of a band of Carolina volunteers in the American Revolution.  He learned his brand of fighting in the French and Indian War on the American frontier. 

In the Spring of 1780 Thomas Sumter, a daring and powerful leader, galloped from his home in the High Hills to recruit a band of backwoodsmen in the Upcountry of South Carolina. Darting out of secret bases, he and his troops ambushed enemy fords and ferries along the Catawba and Wateree Rivers.   Fearless, like a fighting gamecock, Sumter led his band of guerrilla fighters against the mighty British forces.
