Greenland Swamp, South Carolina
27 November 1782
Harry was a slave owned by Mr. Gailliard, a loyalist in Charlestown. Harry had been assigned to the Quarter Master Generalís Department and was frequently employed to spy on the partisan and militia groups around Charlestown.
In November Harry had been sent to Monckís Corner to gather intelligence on Francis Marionís partisans. A party of Whig militia took Harry prisoner and then cut off his head. The head was placed on a stake beside the Greenland Swamp as a warning to others.
The Royal newspapers blamed Marionís partisans for this, but it seems unlikely since Marionís partisans were not known for atrocities.
