Have wanted this book for years and finally got it this past Christmas. It’s amazing. Most of my ancestors came from the South Carolina back country, enticed to come from Ireland in the colonial period when SC had more slaves than white people and residents lived in constant fear of Indian incursions and slave revolts. The Revolution played out against a backdrop of so many competing loyalties and interests, it’s fascinating, and my paternal forebear George M’Cullock seems to have switched sides at least once. It was really a Civil War.
