A land whose people knew the joy of great victories and the sadness of bitter defeats, South Carolina gave us the first Americans cowboys, the cotton gin, and a long list of colorful military and political figures, from Swamp-Fox Marion to Pitchfork Ben Tillman and Cotton Ed Smith. Louis Wright's masterful telling of the story will fascinate residents and non-residents alike.
