Do you think that Tarleton and the Swamp Fox inspired Benjamin Martin and the Patriot?


Great episode! I live not 2 miles from the site of the battle of the Waxhaws (which I was thrilled to hear you mention). It's one of the most important battles you never hear about.

But a small point. Camden is no where near the NC-SC border. It's smack in the middle of the state.


It was neat to hear you reference the massacre at Cherry Valley in a recent episode. My great-great-great-great-great-great-grandmother was one of those who was killed during the attack. History comes alive when your own flesh and blood is involved.


I regularly drive past a pub called The General Tarleton, never knew its history. I guess it does not get a lot of American visitors despite the local base!!
Not far from Marston Moor when you visit

Hello there, for the last year or so I have been listening to the History of Rome off and on. I'm on the 100th episode after taking a break for a few months because well... I'm dumb.. But I just wanted you to know that I have loved everything you've done so far and I am very glad I found you through a plug in on Extra Credits comment. (They where paid by the guys who made Total War: Rome to make a Roman History episode which they did on the second Punic Wars.)

I'm 19, and I am absolutely in love with what you have done. So thank you very much for giving me an outlet to sate my curiosity in Roman History and beyond.
