Archaeologists looking for treasurers[sic] of Revolutionary War hero
Searchers found a brass candleholder, a small British cannonball and horse gear as they search for details about the state's craftiest Revolutionary War hero, Francis Marion.
Marion was known as the Swamp Fox for hiding in Lowcountry bogs while organizing attacks on the British. His hideouts still are a mystery.

But archaeologists are opening one site where Marion may have spent a few weeks in 1780.
