Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the seventh episode of Walt Disney's eight-part miniseries The Swamp Fox, Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion (Leslie Nielsen) has rescued his sweetheart Mary Videaux (Barbara Eiler) from the clutches of British officer Col. Tarleton. In their efforts to escape the British-held port of Charleston, Marion and his band of guerillas must first find themselves a sailing vessel. Mary works out a clever scheme whereby she convinces the captain of a British prison ship that she is a loyalist and that she hopes to throw Marion's men in irons. "A Woman's Courage" originally aired as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology.
