Andrew Pickens, the Wizard Owl | Palmetto Special

The television lesson includes a segment on each man designed to give an insight into his character. Andrew Pickens had been parolled by the British in Charleston when that city was captured in May 1780.

This segment tells what occurred to cause Pickens to reenter the war.
