William Gilmore Simms
Eutaw is the sequel to The Forayers, and the penultimate romance in Simms's Revolutionary War saga. It completes the story of the British withdrawal from their outpost at Ninety-Six, including the battle of Eutaw Springs, the last major engagement of the Carolina theatre, and its aftermath. Simms's standout characters, Ellen "Hurriance Nell" Floyd and Hell-Fire Dick gain complexity and intrigue as they are further developed from their introductions in The Forayers.
