Francis Marion letter to Peter Horry

"Bacon Bridge, SC - 3 May 1782

I am posted here, two miles in front of the Continental army, within three-quarters of a mile of the above bridge. The General, according to custom, keeps me between him and the enemy."

The two mile mark he speaks of is a site near present day Colonial Dorchester State Park, in Dorchester County.
