Dr. Tony Zeiss is President of Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North Carolina. His most recent book focuses on the life of Thomas Young and is titled “Backcountry Fury, A Sixteen-Year-Old Patriot in the Revolutionary War.”
The best way to describe what it was like for a South Carolina backcountry teenage partisan in 1780 is to tell it in his own words. The basic text is taken from Thomas Young’s Memoirs.
