Abstract:
The author of this article gives an overview of the size and fauna of the Great Dismal Swamp. She talks about the early Indians and the colonies of ‘maroons’ runaway slaves, who called the Great Dismal Swamp home. The Great Dismal Swamp and the maroons have been immortalized in literature by such writers as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry Wadsworth, Moses Grandy and Frederick L. Omstead, among others.
