The Quaker and the Gamecock tells the story of two wildly divergent leaders, Continental Army General Nathanael Greene and Patriot militia leader Thomas Sumter. Set against the backdrop of the American Revolution’s last gasp, the effort to extricate a British occupation force from South Carolina frontier, the book explores the complex political, personal, and socioeconomic challenges the Southern theater.
