The South Carolina Encyclopedia Guide to the American Revolution in South Carolina details the people, places, and struggles that defined the region's prominent role in the path to American liberty from British authority. Nearly 140 battles of the American Revolution were fought in South Carolina, more than in any other colony. As America's first civil war, the revolution pitted Loyalists against partisans and patriots in the fierce combat that established the legacies of figures such as Francis Marion, Nathanael Greene, Peter Horry, Henry and John Laurens, Daniel Morgan, and Andrew Jackson. In addition to profiling these leaders, this guide also chronicles the major combat operations, including the battles of Ninety Six, Cowpens, Camden, Kings Mountain, and Charleston Harbor. Also documented are the vital contributions of African Americans and Native Americans in the struggle and the roles of Revolutionary War heroines such as Kate Barry, Emily Geiger, Rebecca Brewton Motte, and Dorcas Nelson Richardson. The origins of the South Carolina state flag and seal in the war are detailed as well in this treasure trove of fascinating information for students and historians of the American Revolution.

Emphasis on people named in subtitle:General Lachlan McIntosh emigrated with his father John Mackintosh Mor from Scotland to the settlement at Darien, Georgia, served in Oglethorpe's regiment at Fort Frederica, and held important commands in the Continental Army during the American Revolution;Flora MacDonald rescued Bonnie Prince Charlie after the Jacobite Rising of 1745, emigrated to North Carolina before the American Revolution, lost her plantation because she, her husband and their sons remained loyal to the king, and returned to Scotland;Roderick "Rory" McIntosh, a grandson of Brigadier William Mackintosh of Borlum, grew up in Scotland, emigrated to Darien with his family, and served in the British army during the American Revolution;Aeneas the 22nd Chief of Clan Mackintosh served as a ranger in colonial South Carolina, returned to Scotland before the Rising of 1745, and remained loyal to the government;"Colonel Anne" Mackintosh married the 22nd Chief of Clan Mackintosh and brought out the clan for Bonnie Prince Charlie in the Rising of 1745;Continental Colonel John McIntosh defiantly defended Sunbury, Georgia, and was taken prisoner at Brier Creek;John Mackintosh Mor fought in the Rising of 1715, led the Scots who settled Darien, Georgia, and was taken prisoner in the Battle of Mosa;Aeneas the 23rd Chief of Clan Mackintosh served as a captain in the 71st Highlanders throughout the American Revolution;Brigadier William Mackintosh of Borlum led Jacobite forces in the Rising of 1715 and also participated in the Rising of 1719;Alexander McDonald was born in the Scottish Highlands and emigrated to Georgia as a recruit for the regiment at Fort Frederica;His son Sergeant Alexander McDonald served in the 2nd South Carolina Regiment under the command of Francis Marion in the American Revolution;Allen McDonald performed heroic feats in Marion's Brigade during the American Revolution.This book is a collection of legends. Legends are neither fiction nor nonfiction; they are based on historical events and feature historical people, but they intertwine mythology, folklore, and creative storytelling with histori-cal facts. I did not invent any of these legends; they have all been published before.I have focused on legends involving Clan Mackintosh in Scotland and its McIntosh progeny in America. I also have included information on my immigrant ancestor Alexander McDonald, who was among the Highlanders who founded Darien, Georgia, and information on his son – known in my family as Alexander McDonald Jr. – who served in the 2nd South Carolina Regiment in the American Revolution. I have included good stories about legendary characters who share my family name, including Flora MacDonald – who witnessed both the Jacobite Rising of 1745 in Scotland and the Revolution in America – and the remarkable “Serjt. M'Donald” of Francis Marion's backcountry brigade. I have combined the various legends into a single narrative told in chronological order. Most of the legends are combat tales, and most of the characters are men.The narrative begins with the adventures of John Mackintosh Mor in the Jacobite Rising of 1715. It then follows the lives of John Mor's children (including Continental General Lachlan McIntosh), John Mor's grandchildren (including Colonel John McIntosh), and the descendants (including Rory McIntosh) of John Mor's uncle, Brigadier William Mackintosh from Borlum. Meanwhile, the adventures of several chiefs of Clan Mackintosh intermingle with the adventures of John Mor's family in Scotland and America.

The Powder Magazine was completed circa 1713 as an arsenal to safely store munitions in the South Carolina colonial capital of Charles Town, serving continuously in defense through the 1740s and periodically until the 1820s. Rescued from destruction in 1902, the building has served as a museum for more than a century, inspiring countless other historic conservation efforts. Museum Director Alan Stello presents the story of the state's oldest public building by establishing connections between the arsenal and the significant episodes it has witnessed. Readers will enjoy an introductory look at South Carolina colonial military history while gaining an appreciation for this icon of history and preservation.

Brigadier William Mackintosh of Borlum commanded a Jacobite army in the Rising of 1715 in Britain and also participated in the Rising of 1719. His nephew John – who was distinguished from the many other clansmen with the same name by the Gaelic word “mor,” meaning big, and whose name was often written John McIntosh Mohr – went with him in the Jacobite Rising of 1715. As an adult, John Mackintosh Mor led the Highlanders who settled at Darien, Georgia. The Highlanders were greeted by Aeneas Mackintosh, who served in a ranger troop that protected his relatives in the settlements of coastal Georgia. Aeneas Mackintosh returned to Scotland and became the 22nd Chief of Clan Mackintosh. John Mackintosh Mor was taken prisoner in the Battle of Mosa near St. Augustine and held in a Spanish jail. His teenage son William escaped from Mosa and fought in the Battle of Bloody Marsh on St. Simons Island. Another son, Lachlan, served in the regiment on St. Simons. In the Jacobite Rising of 1745 in Scotland, Aeneas Mackintosh remained loyal to the government while his wife earned the nickname Colonel Anne for rallying the clan in support of Bonnie Prince Charlie. John Mackintosh Mor was released in a prisoner of war exchange and returned to his family in Georgia. His family played a leading role in the campaign for independence from Great Britain.
