Abstract:

During the War for Independence, black freedman Stuart Brodie returns from the war, only to find his brother lynched and his tavern in the backcountry of South Carolina burnt to the ground. Knowing that the guilty party was allied with the Colonial Patriots, he joins the British Army to exact his revenge. Meanwhile, Marty, raped by her husband and his friend and left to recover alone, dressed in men's clothing, is mistaken for a man. She uses this to her advantage to join the Colonial forces. Meanwhile, the Patriots are gathering backcountry fighters for an open confrontation with the British troops under Major Patrick Ferguson. This Ghost Legion is growing steadily, and though the British Loyalists do not believe the legion exists, when the two forces meet at the battle of King's Mountain, it will prove to be a turning point in the American Revolution.
