Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the fourth episode of Walt Disney's eight-part miniseries The Swamp Fox, Continental Army guerilla leader Francis Marion (Leslie Nielsen) feels responsible when his nephew Gabe is killed by the Tories. Letting revenge outweigh his duty to his men, Marion personally sets out to kill Gabe's murderer, Amos Briggs (John Anderson). As a result of Marion's dereliction, the Redcoats seize control of South Carolina's valuable salt supply, necessitating a desperate last-minute raid against British fortifications. "Day of Reckoning" originally aired as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology.
