About Marion County. Marion County was organized in 1823, out of pieces of Jefferson and Fayette Counties. Its county seat is Salem, Illinois.

 

Marion County was named for Francis Marion, a military officer who served in the American Revolutionary War. Acting with Continental Army and South Carolina militia commissions, he was a persistent adversary of the British in their occupation of South Carolina in 1780 and 1781, even after the Continental Army was driven out of the state in the Battle of Camden.

 

Due to his irregular methods of warfare, Marion is considered one of the fathers of modern guerrilla warfare, and is credited in the lineage of the United States Army Rangers. Learn More
