Revolutionary War:Bloody Vengeance
While the British occupied Savannah, a bloody vengeance was in play along the river country and back-river. The homes in the northern coastal areas into South Carolina were in shambles as no one was truly safe from skirmishes. Many of the pensioners from Georgia serving in the local militias found difficulties gaining pensions because they served for 3 month spans, went home to tend to crops, then found themselves involved in other militia maneuvers. Service was difficult to prove during these times unless the soldier was in the Continental Army, which he was not, during the occupation of Savannah.
