The newest in the series of Swamp Fox Murals located throughout Clarendon County, S.C., was recently completed. It is located in the Town of Summerton on South Church Street, opposite the local Clarendon School District #1 offices. The newest mural is called “Elusive Marion”.
During the American Revolution, General Francis Marion’s Brigade continuously eluded the British forces under Lt. Col Tarleton. Marion's Militia slipped through swamps, trees and grasslands, enticing the British to follow them hoping to ambush them at Benbow's Ferry on the Black River.

The 10' by 24' mural was painted by artist Terry Smith of Land O'Lakes, Florida. Terry started painting the series of Swamp Fox Murals back in 2005. This latest mural in Summerton was donated by The Swamp Fox Murals Trail Society. It was finished on January 19, 2016.
