of the settlerments :and the fearlessneess
of the inhabitants suggested very
stromnly the people who withstood the
Persian migcht in Greece. When n
regiment was organized In the dis

Thomas. Sr. "The Spartans" were
attached to the command of Col. Rich
ardson and took an active part in the
snow campalign in which the Tory
forces were much harried. The name
Spartans was applied in time to all
of those in northwest South Carolina.,
and although it is difficult to trace the
history of the regiment Itself, the
people of the region were continnally
active in the canuse of liberty.
