William W. Broddie complied a book, from the stub indents ofthe militia pay, entitled "Marion's Men, A List ofTwenty-five Hundred"(1938). Only those who filed for militia pay are in it.
In addition, many courthouses with vital records were lost, eight decades later,in the Civil War as a result ofGeneral Sherman and other northern forces burning the courthouses.
Most have desired this information to join:Sons and Daughters of the American Revolution , National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) and/or National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR).
Marion's troops were basically a guerrilla force, raised irregularly from the backwoods ofSouth Carolina, no roster was kept. The only published record ofthe men who fought under him comes from the claims that were later filed for militia pay against the state ofSouth Carolina.
