Hint 4 of "who" we are honoring on October 10. A soldier wrote that this person was "...perhaps the bravest man that ever lived."

8 September 1781 The battle of Eutaw Springs, the bloodiest encounter in the Southern Campaign, was the last major Revolutionary War engagement in South Carolina. Attached is a 1797 petition to the General Assembly from William Carter, requesting a pension because he “was badly wounded through the Breast and Hip at the Euteau Spring fighting for his country in General Green’s Army”.

Hint 3 of "who" we are honoring on October 10. One description is of a robust and very healthy person over 6' in height.

On this date (August 31)

1781: Skirmish at Cypress Swamp: Brig Gen Francis Marion sent Capt George Cooper with a detachment of mounted militia to create a diversion from the Battle at Parker's Ferry. At Cypress Swamp, 15 miles southwest of Moncks Corner, Capt Cooper chased away Loyalists & rode towards Charles Town. At Ashley River Church, his men attacked another group of Loyalists, which were using the church as a military station. Capt Cooper had no casualties in these engagements and he was able to return to his compatriots at Peyre's Plantation with a number of prisoners.
