Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Event Description

Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, performed by Ken Johnston from Gainesville GA.  Music by: Zoe & Cloyd.

You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. 

Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.

Join the crafty and elusive, Francis Marion as he outwits the British in the American Revolution. Marion’s devastating guerrilla warfare  earned him the title of “Swamp Fox.” Although virtually in a sea of enemies, Marion and militia leaders Thomas Sumter and Andrew Pickens kept resistance alive in South Carolina until the Continental Army could recapture the region.

Meet the Man behind the Myth, the unquestioned leader of, as Dr. Walter Edger pointed out, “a ragged band of both black and white volunteers” who just kept fighting until the Revolution was won.

Tickets are $5 per show. Tickets are available at the door. Box Office opens at 6pm each show night. For groups of 20 or more, please contact:  buncombe2018@gmail.com
