This work ties up the whole elusive body of documents and printed sources related to the more than 20,000 rank and file South Carolina soldiers who made up the battle lines in an untold number of skirmishes with the British and the Tories. The information, which was taken from pension records, bounty land warrants, annuitants' claims, audited accounts, muster rolls, pay lists, and standard published sources and more, is arranged in paragraph form under the name of the soldier and includes some or all of the following details: dates of enlistment, service, battles, and skirmishes; names of commanding officers; names or designation of military unit; rank attained; notations indicating whether the soldier was wounded, killed or taken prisoner; source citations; and, in the case of data deriving from federal pension files or state annuity claims, dates and places of birth and death, names of wives and children, and places of residence before and after the War.
