Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the sixth episode of Walt Disney's eight-part miniseries The Swamp Fox, 18th century American guerilla leader Francis Marion (Leslie Nielsen) has again succeeded in thwarting the plans of Redcoat officer Col. Tarleton (John Sutton). Escaping from Marion's men, Tarleton takes refuge in the home of Mary Videaux (Barbara Eiler), whom he believes is a pro-British Tory. But when Tarleton sees Mary kissing Francis during a secret rendezvous, he puts two and two together and realizes that Mary is working for the Continentals. Capturing Mary and putting her on trial for treason in Charleston, SC, Tarleton hopes to flush out Marion and his men for a final, bloody showdown. "A Case of Treason" originally aired as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology.
