Bold text==A Case For Notability== I believe that George Galphin in fact meets the criteria for notabily as he was an important player in the Southern theater of the American Revolution who actively led American efforts to combat the British efforts in recruiting Native Americans to their side. Furthermore the fact that his estate was at the center of the Galphin affair is reason to believe this article meets notibility criteria.

Here are references which may support George Galphin's case for notability: George Galphin: Portrait of an Early South Carolina Entrepreneur ......................... Michael Morris, University of South Carolina—Aiken THE PROCEEDINGS of The South Carolina Historical Association 2002 page 29 ... Blurred Racial Lines of Famous Families Galphin
