Lunch & Learn: A Passel of Trouble

  • Chapman Cultural Center 200 East Saint John Street Spartanburg, SC, 29302 United States (map)

Author Joe Epley illustrates the saga of David Fanning exploits, a 19-year-old Sergeant when the Revolutionary War began.  Fanning, who fought in the first Battle of Ninety Six, the Snow Campaign and battle at Musgrove Mill, was captured 14 times in the first three years of the war -- and got away each time, often hiding out in the upstate, including what is now Spartanburg County.  During the last two years of the war, Fanning was commissioned as a militia colonel by the British Army and successfully led his forces in 36 firefights, including one that captured the state's governor and 200 Continental soldiers.
