One of the defenders of a besieged fort in South Carolina wrote the governor "We have now the pleasure, Sir, to fatten our dogs with their carcasses and to display their scalps neatly ornamented on the top of our bastions." According to the 18th century historian David Ramsay, that fierce and bloody war "tainted the principles of many of the inhabitants, so as to endanger the peace and happiness of society." Respectable backcountry people :acquired such vicious habits that when the war was over they despised labor and became pests of society," creating in the backcountry a constant state of "anarchy, disorder, and confusion."

Brown, THE SOUTH CAROLINA REGULATORS (Cambridge MA, 1963):7, 12.
