Dusty Owens is a native of Florence County. He graduated from Francis Marion University and served for twenty years in the United States Army. Formerly the head of the Florence County Emergency Management Department, he currently serves as a Methodist Minister. Owens has had a lifelong interest in history. He is especially interested in the Revolutionary War and Francis Marion as both he and his wife have ancestors who fought under Marion. His research on the Battle of Blue Savannah includes reading all of the pensioner’s accounts of the running battle that took place between present day Marion & Horry Counties. He will also share information from other historians and his own thoughts on the battle.
