Dr. Stefan Wiecki, Professor of History at Presbyterian College, presented a program on Francis Salvador.  Salvador was the first Jew to serve in the  Revolutionary War.  He ended up losing his life as he was shot two times and scalped by the Cherokee Indians.  His ride through the dangerous Indian Territory  exceeded the miles covered by Paul Revere’s ride.  Dr. Wiecki’s presentation brought home to Abbeville the significance of our  revolutionary history.
