South Carolina reenactors like A Passel of Hate

"A Passel of Hate" captured the true essence of the war in the backcountry during the Revolutionary War.  The main character, Jacob Godley, was treat.  "A Passel of Hate" ranks right up there with any of Allen Eckert's or Kenneth Roberts historical novels.  Every arm-chair historian should have "A Passel of Hate" in their library.
