Gee, Rich, thanks for the 'Swamp Fox' tie in. I had no idea re: the movie or your township. I've always had a thing for the 'Fox' since I saw the Walt Disney movie eons ago (I'm showing my age, here). Frankly, I miss some of their historical stuff. Disney had another that I dearly loved: "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" starring 'Secret Agent Man' Patrick McGoohan. Loved it! Anyway, thanks!
: The backdrop of "The Last of the Mohicans," the French & Indian War, sowed the seeds for the American Revolution less than 20 years later. That, coupled with the involvement of some MohicanLand residents, makes the forthcoming film, "The Patriot," great fodder for this Site! Starring Mel Gibson, the film is very LOOSELY based on a partisan guerilla leader, Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox (for which the town I reside in was named after ... Marion, NC) ...
: Anyway, courtesy of Smoke & Fire, and our resident Vermonter, Donna, comes this little article about the filming.
: See followups ...
