Family tradition states he was with Sergeant Jasper at Fort Moultrie when he retrieved the flag and held it in place until the pole could be spliced. This was by some supposed to be for sentmental reasons, but Richard Fancher said he understood the city was to be burned if the flag went down and by holding the flag in place the city was saved from being burned.
