        Mordecai Sheftall - Colonial Hero | Georgia Stories

        When the British attacked Savannah, Mordecai Sheftall was captured in a skirmish when he refused to abandon his son. Marion Levy Mendel, a Sheftall descendant, describes the capture. Threatened with "skivvering", he refused to reveal where patriot supplies were hidden. Sheftall was imprisoned, escaped, and recaptured. He was eventually pardoned and remained a patriot throughout.
