Jim's Quote of the Day:

"[General Francis] Marion's Men were also discouraged. The forces mounting against them seemed overwhelming. As they sat around their campfires, they began to talk as if certain ruin would overtake them. Finally Col. Peter Horry [a compatriot of Marion's] said to his troops: "I am ashamed to hear you talk like this. We have often, before now, seen as heavy clouds hanging over us; and yet, with heaven's blessing on our arms, those clouds have been dispersed, and golden days restored. And who knows we may shortly see it so again?" - Robert D. Bass, Swamp Fox: The Life and campaigns of General Francis Marion, 1959
