If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, Move from here to
there, and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.
Matthew 17:20
Many people helped me to move this mountain. Though historical research and
writing are inherently solitary and lonely exercises, they are impossible to do successfully
without the help and support of others. My academic debts begin with my dissertation
supervisor, Dr. Bertram Wyatt-Brown, and the members of my committee, professors
Jeffrey S. Adler, David R. Colburn, C. John Sommerville, and Samuel S. Hill (who
graciously agreed to serve at the last moment). With remarkable patience they demanded
that I rethink my ideas and question my assumptions, hammered away at my sloppy use
of commas and passive voice, and continually challenged me to become a better thinker,
writer, and historian. I could not have chosen better mentors. Finally, I owe a special
intellectual debt to Dr. Carl J. Vipperman, who first kindled my interest in South Carolina
history as an undergraduate at the University of Georgia.
I am grateful to Allen H. Stokes, Henry Fullmer, and Daniel Boice of the South
Caroliniana Library of the University of South Carolina, Columbia; former directors
Alexander Moore and Joseph Kitchens and director of publications Stephen Hoffius of
the South Carolina Historical Society, Charleston; Elizabeth Alexander and Bruce
Chappel of the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the University of Florida; Dr.


John Ingram, director of Special Collections at the University of Florida Libraries; the
staffs of the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, Columbia, the
Charleston Library Society, and the University of Floridas Interlibrary Loan department;
and Betty Convine, Kimberly Yocum, and Linda Opper of the UF Department of History.
The Department of History at the University of Florida provided teaching
assistantships for more years than I had a right to expect. The Universitys College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences awarded a generous fellowship that allowed me to spend a
summer in Columbia. And it was my good fortune and pleasure to work for three years
with University legend Dr. Samuel Proctor in the Oral History Program. Special thanks
to Dr. Barbara Oberlander of Santa Fe Community College, who took a gamble and gave
me my first opportunity to teach my own class. Her kindness will not be forgotten.
My personal debts to friends and family are many. Daniel W. Stowell is partially
responsible for getting me into this mess to begin with. If I was sometimes a burden to
him, I cannot say with any honesty that I regret a minute of it. I was fortunate to enter the
graduate program at the University of Florida with five men who turned out to be more
than just colleagues. They made the long journey of classes, qualifying exams, and
dissertations a little less bumpy and a lot more fun. My thanks to the Fab Five, great
friends, learned scholars, and pretty good poker players: Andrew Granddad Chancey,
Glenn Brains Crothers, Mark Ignatius Greenberg, Dan Snuggles Kilbride, and
Chris Gomez Olsen. My aunt and uncle, Helen and Nathaniel Deaton, opened their
home and hearts to me on my many research trips to Charleston. They are two very
special people. April Arrington has become the sister I never had, a confidant who shares
IV


my joys, sorrows, occasional triumphs, and my love of the Pandas buffet lunch. Her
warm heart and laughter helped preserve my sanity, and I count her friendship among my
greatest treasures. Finally, many thanks to dear friends Don and Dawn Denny, Bryan and
Lynn Drost, Bret and Shawna Hegi, Jim and Jan Johnson, and Scot Hawes, all of whom
must have wondered what was taking me so long but had the good grace not to ask.
My greatest debts are to my family. Ken and Elaine Grizzle generously supported
me throughout this endeavor, never questioning a decision that moved their daughter far
from home. I love them both very much and am honored to be their son-in-law. My big
brother Jeff bailed me out of many difficult school projects when we were growing up,
but for some reason he made me do this one alone. I hope he is as proud of the results as
I have always been of him. My parents, Bill and Jeannette Deaton, encouraged us to
follow where our interests and talents led, and they gave us both the means and the
freedom to find our own way. Their love and support has sustained me throughout my
life, and nothing I have done-especially this degree-would have been possible without
them. I love them dearly, and they deserve more than I can ever repay. Finally, my wife,
Deborah Grizzle Deaton, allowed me to follow my dream and eagerly chased it with me
every step of the way. This dissertation and degree are as much her achievements as they
are mine. She has been my rock and my strength, brightening my darkest days, believing
in me long after I stopped believing in myself. Debbie worked tirelessly, sacrificed much,
and never once complained. There will be many stars in her crown, and I thank God
every day that she chose to walk through life with me. Of Debbie, Mom, and Dad it may
truly be said, If I reached high it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.

Abstract of Dissertation Presented to the Graduate School
of the University of Florida in Partial Fulfillment of the
Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy
REVOLUTIONARY CHARLESTON, 1765-1800
By
Stanley Kenneth Deaton
December 1997
Chairman: Bertram Wyatt-Brown
Major Department: History
This project addresses four major problems: the transforming nature of the
American Revolution; the expansion of democratic politics and economic liberalism in
the South; Charlestons evolution from the colonial Souths largest city to an increasingly
inward-looking, paranoid, and declining port; and the transformation of slavery from a
ubiquitous American institution to a primarily Southern one. The American Revolution
transformed Charleston and South Carolina from a world that emphasized hierarchy and
deferential elite leadership to one marked by contentious, egalitarian politics and
economic liberalism. The movement replaced the notion of a classical republic led by a
disinterested, entrenched Charleston aristocracy with a democratic political economy
where individuals openly acknowledged competing political and economic interests.
Artisans, mechanics, yeoman farmers, and small merchants did not seek to exclude or


isolate themselves from the market economy but instead sought improved access to it in
order to ensure that it would benefit all segments of society, not just lowcountry planters
and merchants. Simultaneously, however, Revolutionary ideology forced many
Americans to question and ultimately condemn slavery at just the moment when most
white Charlestonians became convinced that their prosperity and identity rested more
than ever upon slaverys survival and expansion. The contested meanings of the
Revolution, growing abolitionism, and subsequent events in France and Santo Domingo
combined to raise white levels of anxiety over slavery to a fever pitch. Many South
Carolinians found themselves defending and maintaining by force an institution
increasingly labeled anti-modem, anti-progressive, and anti-Christian by much of the rest
of the world. Charleston subsequently became less cosmopolitan during the 1790s,
increasingly erecting an intellectual blockade against hostile outside ideas and people at
just the moment when its economic future shone brightest. Ultimately, the American
Revolution in the South spawned a dual, Janus-faced, legacy: a strongly optimistic faith
in political and economic liberalism that favored trade with all the world coupled with a
growing anxiety over dangerous external ideas about universal equality that threatened to
destroy the very fabric of Southern economic and social life.

INTRODUCTION
THROUGH THE PAST, DARKLY
Historians are left forever chasing shadows, painfully aware of their inability ever to
reconstruct a dead world in its completeness however thorough or revealing their
documentation.... We are doomed to be forever hailing someone who has just gone
around the comer and out of earshot.
Simon Schama, Dead Certainties (1991)
This study began with the question, What were the effects of the American
Revolution in the South? Gordon S. Wood has recently portrayed the American
Revolution as the most radical and most far-reaching event in American history, a
movement that democratized the nation and cleared the way for liberal capitalism.
According to Wood, the Revolution created the most liberal, the most democratic,
the most commercially minded, and the most modem people in the world.1 Woods
thesis, however, contradicts two prevailing paradigms in Southern history. First,
Eugene D. Genovese and other Southern historians argue that the South was
dominated by patriarchal slaveholders committed to an anti-capitalist ethos that
emphasized staple crop agriculture, slavery, honor, and leisure.2 Opposed to
'Gordon S. Wood, The Radicalism of the American Revolution (New York:
Alfred A. Knopf, 1992), 8, 7.
2A11 of this literature is discussed more fully in chapter five, but see in particular
Genovese, The Political Economy of Slavery: Studies in the Economy and Society of the
Slave South (New York: Random House, 1968), 3-39. This is perhaps the most

aggressive capitalistic behavior, Southerners supposedly remained anti-modem in
outlook,3 anxious about capitalistic development,4 and culturally opposed to
economic improvements.5 They eschewed the commercial behavior that paved the
way for an increasingly capitalistic society in the North in the years after the
Revolution.6 Secondly, historians of the eighteenth-century South have insisted that
the American Revolution in the region was primarily a conservative, cautious,
political revolt that simply consolidated elite rule, in this case replacing the Crown
influential articulation of the view that Southern planters were anti-capitalists. Genovese
argues that Southern planters and their economic system were tied to the world system of
markets but were not capitalists. The planters were not mere capitalists; they were
precapitalist, quasi-aristocratic landowners who had to adjust their economy and ways of
thinking to a capitalist world market. Their society, in its spirit and fundamental
direction, represented the antithesis of capitalism. Genovese, Ibid., 23.
JThe best recent summary of this point of view is Douglas R. Egerton, Markets
Without a Market Revolution: Southern Planters and Capitalism, Journal of the Early
Republic 16 (Summer 1996): 207-221. Egerton argues that if the Atlantic market
shaped the plantation economy to its own ends, it simultaneously spawned a landed elite
with economic interests and moral values antagonistic to the spirit of modem capitalism.
Egerton, 220.

tire rest of America and has been at odds with the mainstream of American values or
behavior and therefore has been constructed as a special problem, see the collection of
essays in Larry J. Griffin and Don H. Doyle, eds., The South as an American Problem

with a slaveholding oligarchy. Historians characterize particularly the Revolution in
South Carolina-home to some of the most conservative, wealthy, and politically
powerful Americans-as a limited political movement in which traditional
aristocratic leaders survived the break with Great Britain. Robert M. Weir maintains
that the Revolution in South Carolina was a remarkably conservative movement
that never led to any extensive social or economic change.7 Almost every other
historian of eighteenth-century South Carolina agrees.8 How then does one square
Robert M. Weir, Colonial South Carolina: A History (Millwood NY: KTO Press,
1983), 332-333.
sHistorians of Revolutionary South Carolina have denied the existence of a
radical Revolution in that state, and generally agree, as S.R. Matchett has noted, on two
points: that the Revolution was limited to political reforms and that the traditional
aristocratic leaders survived the break with Britain, despite making a few concessions to
backcountry upstarts. None has examined the radicalism of the expansion of political
and economic liberalism in the post-war decades. S.R. Matchett, Unanimity, Order and
Regularity: The Political Culture of South Carolina in the Era of the Revolution, Ph.D.
dissertation, University of Sydney, 1980, 6-7. Matchett argues for a consensus model
as a way of understanding South Carolina political culture in the years after the war.
The aristocrats held power, he argues, not in spite of popular opposition but because
they reflected the values and interests of the community at large. Matchett, Ibid., 16.

the new synthesis on the American Revolution-Woods interpretationwith the
prevailing model of development for the American South?
Charleston, South Carolina, as the colonial Souths largest city, for a number
of reasons proved to be an ideal place to examine the hypothesis of a radical
revolution in the South. First, eighteenth-century seaboard commercial cities,
according to Gary B. Nash, predicted the future.9 Though America remained
overwhelmingly rural, colonial cities were urban crucibles, on the cutting edge of
economic, social, and political change and the cradles of both American capitalism
and American democracy. Transformations in American society first occurred in
cities and then radiated outward to the countryside.10 In Charleston, if anywhere in

the South, the effects of the American Revolution and its legacy should be most

Secondly, historians of the Revolutionary era have focused much attention on

Southern history. Nash, for instance, found that in Boston, Philadelphia, and New
York the Revolution brought an internal struggle for a new social order. In
Northern cities plebeian urban dwellers adopted street demonstrations, mass
meetings, and extralegal committees to challenge the established elite and force their
way into the political arena.12 Similarly, the Revolution in New York, according to
Edward Countryman, amounted to a democratic revolution that firmly laid the
foundations of a liberal bourgeois society. New Yorks Revolution appealed to
artisans, white laborers, small farmers, and expectant small capitalists, while
bypassing blacks, Indians, and women, none of whom took part as a group in the
revolutionary coalition, and none of them got much that they wanted out of its
radicalism.13 And in Philadelphia, Thomas M. Doerflinger found that merchants
displayed a vigorous spirit of enterprise by capitalizing on the commercial
opportunities stimulated by war. Indeed, he located the entrepreneurial origins of
American economic development in the drive and flexibility, the tolerance for risk,
[and] the roving quest for new markets that characterized Northernbut not
Southern-businessmen during the Revolutionary era.14 These findings are broadly
suggestive of the recent scholarship on northern colonial cities and demonstrate, in
Countrymans phrase, that the revolution was genuinely revolutionary.15 But are

these conclusions applicable to the colonial urban South as well? The consistent
theme of Revolutionary urban history over the last quarter-century-that the
American Revolution fundamentally reshaped Northern society, politics, and
economiesdirectly contradicts the predominant interpretations in Southern history
of an anti-capitalist South and a Revolution limited to minor political reforms. A
study of the American Revolution in Charleston thus provides an excellent
opportunity to test these competing and contradictory interpretations.
Thirdly, Revolutionary Charleston should furnish a better understanding of
the Revolutions transformative effector lack ofupon Southern cities. Even now,
upon first entering the city, a visitor cannot help but notice that Charleston seems
frozen in time, the Federalist architecture of the 1790s remaining the dominant
characteristic of the city. Though the eighteenth-century docks that once jutted out
into the Cooper River along East Bay Street have long since disappeared, there are
no skyscrapers, no subways, no factories, no concrete canyons. The absence of
modern development becomes all the more startling when one learns that Charleston
was the largest city in the colonial South, and the fourth largest city in America until
1800. How had it become an almost living museum? If it once rivaled New York,
Philadelphia, and Boston, why did it not do so now? Why did the American
Revolution not propel this colonial metropolis toward continued growth and
expansion in the early Republic, as it did for Baltimore and its more Northern rivals?
Conversely, what role did the Revolution play in Charlestons eventual decline and
stagnation?

************
This dissertation reconciles the contradictions between the new synthesis of
the American Revolution and the dominant interpretations of Southern history. It
addresses four major problems: the transforming nature of the American Revolution;
the expansion of democratic politics and economic liberalism16 in the South;
Charlestons evolution from the colonial Souths largest city to an increasingly
inward-looking, paranoid, and declining port; and the transformation of slavery from
a ubiquitous American institution to a primarily Southern one. The first three
chapters chronicle the enormously disruptive forces that shattered the stable world of
Charlestons elite between 1765 and 1782. These chapters particularly emphasize
the internal revolution caused by social, political, and economic unrest in the years
before the war and the chaos and disruption of the war itself. Charlestons
traditional leaders proved unable to contain the upheaval and a series of events-high
prices, scarce goods, rebellious slaves, armed invasion, military occupation, and
political and religious concessions to outsiderscombined to shake the
foundations of elite power and dominance and paved the way for substantial political
challenges in the post-war years. Chapter four examines the political results of the
Revolution: the continued challenge to elite domination in Charleston, the
incorporation of the city, the expansion of divisive democratic politics, and the
backcountry challenge to lowcountry political hegemony which culminated in
'"Economic liberalism is defined as an economic system stressing
individualism, competition, and a free market economy.

constitutional reform and the removal of the capital to Columbia. Chapter five
reviews the economic results of the American Revolution and the ways in which
economic liberalism muted the divisiveness of democratic politics, healed sectional
wounds, and secured Charlestons continued economic prosperity despite its political
losses. Finally, chapter six explores how increasing white anxiety over slavery in the
1790s created an intellectual blockade against potentially threatening ideas and
people. Revolutionary ideology, abolitionism, the French Revolution, and the slave
revolt in Haiti combined to poison Charlestons previously cosmopolitan intellectual
atmosphere and eventually enervated the effects of the American Revolution itself.

The American Revolution in Charleston was indeed a radical revolution,
transforming Charleston and South Carolina from a world that emphasized hierarchy
and deferential elite leadership to one marked by contentious, egalitarian politics and
economic liberalism. The movement replaced the notion of a classical republic led
by a disinterested, entrenched Charleston aristocracy with a democratic political
economy where individuals openly acknowledged competing political and
economic interests. In these days, William Flomby asserted in 1784, we are equal
citizens of a DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, in which jealously and opposition must
naturally exist, while there exists a difference in the minds, interests, and sentiments
of mankind.17 The Revolution did not create modem democracy or capitalism, per
se, but as Gordon Wood has recently argued, it certainly made both things possible.

It did spread the notion that all should benefit equally from the political and
economic opportunities created by the war. And ultimately the Revolution toppled
Charleston from its dominant position in both South Carolina and the Lower South.
The years 1765-1800 were transforming ones in Charleston and throughout
South Carolina. The Revolution as an event brought outsiders into the political
process and gave them a voice for the first time. Simultaneously, the Revolution
created unprecedented opportunities for economic expansion and growth, and the
elite quickly grasped the chance to invest in new agricultural techniques, new
financial institutions, and innovations in transportation. Outsiders, both in the
backcountry and within the city, demanded to be part of this processnot to
overthrow the system but to participate as equals in the market economy and in a
more participatory democratic politics. They petitioned for new towns and markets,
protective tariffs to encourage home manufactures, improved roads, bridges, ferries,
and canals to link them more effectively with the economic metropolis, while
simultaneously demanding that the political capital be removed to a more central,
plebeian location. Artisans, mechanics, yeoman farmers, and small merchants did
not seek to exclude or isolate themselves from the market economy-far from it.
Instead they sought improved access to it in order to ensure that it would benefit all
segments of society, not just lowcountry planters and merchants. This democratic
political economy was not modem, industrial capitalism, nor was it radically anti
capitalist. It simply sought to spread the benefits of the American Revolution
equally throughout white society. This in effect was the real American


11
Revolution. It certainly did not completely level society, destroy all social ranks,
redistribute wealth or property, or give complete equality to women and African-
Americans. It did, however, fundamentally alter the political, social, and economic
relationships that bound white South Carolinians together.
This interpretation challenges the contention that a majority of Americans in
the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century resisted the transition to
capitalism.18 Most historians who have addressed this subject have either ignored
the South altogether or argued that the South was non- or anti-capitalistic. This
thesis also disputes the notion that Southern planters were anti-modem in economic
outlook, anxious about capitalistic development, or culturally opposed to economic
improvements.19 Gordon Woods argument that no event in the eighteenth century

accelerated the capitalistic development of America more than the American
Revolution is as equally true for the South as the North.20 And finally, it rejects the
argument that the American Revolution in South Carolina was a limited,
conservative, primarily political movement.
Nevertheless, the American Revolution had a much darker side as well.
Therefore this work also traces the evolution of slavery from a general American
institution to a primarily Southern one. Despite-and in many ways because ofthe
sweeping changes in the political economy, the Revolution fastened the chains of
slavery more tightly upon Charlestons-and the Souths-slaves. The increased
economic opportunities created by the war helped to renew and strengthen white
commitment to the institution of slavery, particularly as the shift to tidal rice
cultivation and the expansion of cotton production further increased demands for
labor. Simultaneously, however, Revolutionary ideology forced many Americans to
question and ultimately condemn slavery at just the moment when most white
Charlestonians became convinced that their prosperityindeed their very identity-
rested more than ever upon slaverys survival and expansion in the region. Thus
Charlestonians and other Southerners became even more committed to an institution

that would increasingly become defined as outmoded and uncivilized by the majority
of the trans-Atlantic world.
Ultimately, the American Revolution in the South created a dual, Janus
faced, legacy: a strongly optimistic faith in political and economic liberalism that
favored trade with all the world coupled with a growing anxiety over dangerous
external ideas about universal equality that threatened to destroy the very fabric of
Southern economic and social life. The generation of South Carolinians that lived
through and experienced the American Revolution was as excited about future
commercial possibilities, as open to new technologies, financial institutions,
agricultural improvements, and potential for improved transportation as their
Northern brethren. In that sense being Southern or slaveowners made them no less
modem or liberal than other late eighteenth-century Americans. The genius of our
people, David Ramsay observed in 1783, is entirely turned from war to commerce.
Schemes of business and partnerships for extending commerce are daily forming.21
But the contested meaning of Revolutionary ideology, growing abolitionism, and
subsequent events in France and Santo Domingo combined to raise white levels of
anxiety over slavery to a fever pitch. Many found themselves defending and
maintaining by force an institution increasingly labeled anti-modem, anti
progressive, and anti-Christian by much of the rest of the world. As a result,
Charleston subsequently became less cosmopolitan during the 1790s at just the

moment when its economic future shone brightest. Charleston became caught on the
horns of an enormous dilemma, simultaneously embracing the expansive economic
opportunities of the American Revolution while increasingly erecting an intellectual
blockade against hostile outside ideas and people.
Charlestonians thus failed to follow through on most of their grandiose
schemes for economic improvements. The canals of which they dreamed that would
link Charleston with the Ohio Valley and endless prosperity remained only dreams in
the first quarter of the nineteenth century, and other cities eclipsed Charleston in
economic and political importance. The Erie Canal in New York firmly linked the
Midwest with the North rather than the South. By that time Southerners had begun
to seal themselves off from the rest of the nation rather than seek new ways to
increase economic and commercial ties.
Nevertheless, though succeeding generations of South Carolinians failed to
sustain an optimistic vision of Charleston as the economic terminus of a vast
Southern hinterland, we are compelled still to recognize the existence of a
progressive, modem, liberal vision in the South before 1800 and its origins in the
political and economic radicalism of the American Revolution. In many ways it
represented a road not taken. Yet to overlook or dismiss it as unimportant or fleeting
because of the cataclysmic events of the nineteenth century is to miss the
significance of the American Revolution in the South.


CHAPTER ONE
THE CITY BEFORE THE STORM:
CHARLESTON IN 1765
In human terms Charles Town might best be described as the capital of an African
foothold with a diverse minority of Europeans all under the shaping influence of English
West Indian experience, forcibly wedged into American Indian realms.
D.W. Meinig, Atlantic America, 1492-1800 (1986)
In 1765 Charleston, South Carolina, reigned as the undisputed metropolis of the
Lower Southern British colonies. Charlestons original English and Barbadian settlers
arrived on the west bank of the Ashley River in 1670 at Albemarle Point and relocated
downriver ten years later to the peninsula of land between the Ashley and Cooper rivers.
The city, with its wide and deep harbor, prospered chiefly because of favorable geography
and the citys expanding role as economic entrepot for a fast-growing agricultural
hinterland. But the revolutionary events that began with the Stamp Act crisis in 1765
would ultimately shatter the stability and prosperity of the city and weaken Charlestons
position of dominance in both the state and the region. When Charlestons powerful,
confident elite rose to meet the ministerial challenge to their political authority, they
found themselves in the center of an upheaval that would eventually alter not only their
government but also their society as well. The consequences of the Stamp Act tumults of
15

1765 reverberated throughout the region, heralding like thunder the approach of more
cataclysmic storms to come.1
'Historians have generally argued for the primacy of either geography or economic
function in explaining why South Carolina had an urban center while the rest of the South
did not. For instance, D.W. Meinig argues that Charleston flourished because of climate.
Because Charleston was healthier and cooler than the surrounding countryside, planters
and merchants built houses there and lived in town much of the year. Meinig, The
Shaping of America: A Geographical Perspective on 500 Years of History, volume one,
Atlantic America. 1492-1800 fNew Haven CT: Yale University Press, 1986), 172-190.
See also Herman Wellenreuther, Urbanization in the Colonial South: A Critique,
William and Mary Quarterly 31 (October 1974): 653-671; Leila Sellers, Charleston
Business on the Eve of the American Revolution (Chapel Hill NC: University of North
Carolina Press, 1934), 5. Others argue that Charleston grew because of the economic
functions involved in marketing South Carolina staple crops. The factors necessary for
marketing rice differed substantially from those needed for marketing other southern
staples, particularly tobacco. Chesapeake planters shipped tobacco primarily to London
and Bristol; Carolinians sent rice to Britain, a number of ports in southern and northern
Europe, as well as American mainland and Caribbean ports. Exporters thus had to have
extensive knowledge of considerably more markets as well as maintaining
correspondence with agents in those markets. Also, since rice was shipped in bulk,
obtaining favorable freight rates became as important as choosing the right market. South
Carolina planters thus sold their rice to merchants in Charleston who performed these
delicate and difficult tasks for them. Tobacco planters consigned their crops to Britain,
where they were sold by commission agents on the planters risk and account. There was
no need for a centralized market. Thus the centralization of the rice trade in Charleston
accounts for the citys rise in the eighteenth century. The most recent and persuasive
articulation of this view is R.C. Nash, Urbanization in the Colonial South: Charleston,
South Carolina, as a Case Study, Journal of Urban History 19 (November 1992): 3-29.

Despite Charlestons distance from any of the three main river systems in South
Carolina,2 the Ashley, Cooper, Stono, and Wando rivers linked Charleston to the
surrounding hinterland much more extensively than either Beaufort to the south or
Georgetown to the north.3 "It is a market town and the produce of the whole province is
brought to it, for sale or exportation," the London Magazine reported, "its trade is far
from being inconsiderable for it deals near one thousand miles into the continent."4

Eighteenth Century, William and Mary Quarterly 30 (October 1973): 549-574. It should
be noted that Carville and Earle emphasize staple flows and their linkage effect more
than economic function, per se. They argue that the size and spatial pattern of regional
ports and their respective hinterland towns resulted from the staple produced. And
geography, of course, determined the staples grown and how farmers transported them to
market. The southeastern flow of rivers out of the North Carolina piedmont, for example,
ensured that wheat and naval stores would flow into Charleston rather than to the North
Carolina coast. See Staple Crops and Urban Development, 11, 18, 62, 66-67, and The

Planters and small farmers from the Cape Fear River valley in North Carolina south to
Pensacola in British West Florida shipped the regions great staple productsrice, indigo,
tobacco, wheat, and naval storesdownriver, along the seacoast, or overland by wagon to
Charleston, and by 1765 the city had become the largest in the Southern colonies. Indeed,
the city's population of 8,000 in 1765almost evenly divided between black and white-
ranked as the fourth most populous in colonial America behind Philadelphia, New York,
and Boston [see Tables 1-1 and 1-2].5 The streets of Charleston in 1765 teemed with
royal officials, slaves, indentured servants, merchants, ministers, planters, lawyers,
sailors, ship captains, soldiers, immigrants, beggars, orphans, and prostitutes. Charleston
offered a catholicity of taverns, ballrooms, race tracks, library and benevolent societies,
clubs, churches, coffeehouses, marketplaces, and theaters to meet all tastes. Between
1680 and 1765 Charles Town survived Spanish invasions and a succession of natural
disasters to become the political, social, and economic capital of the region, dominating
and overshadowing Wilmington, Baltimore, and Norfolk to the north, and Savannah and

St. Augustine to the south.6 In short, by 1765 Charleston had become the capital "of the
most flourishing of all His Majesty's American colonies."7
William Gerard De Brahm, the royal surveyor, described Charleston as "the most
convenient and by far the richest city in the Southern District of North America."8 The
London Magazine marveled that "here the rich people have handsome equipages; the
merchants are opulent and well bred; the people are thriving and extensive, in dress and
life, so that everything conspires to make this town the politest, as it is one of the richest
in America."9 Publisher Peter Timothy boasted to his friend Benjamin Franklin that "I do
not suppose there is a colony on this continent in so flourishing and promising a situation
as South Carolina at present. Very elegant buildings are rising in almost every street by
private gentlemen."10 Indeed, the city contained over 900 houses and rent ranged from

"many elegant" houses covered White Point at the south end of the peninsula.12
Governors Bridge connected the city with its first suburbs north of town at Craven's
Bastion, Meeting Street had been extended north to George Street, and in August 1769
the legislature fixed Boundary Street (present-day Calhoun Street) as the town's northern
limit.13 Commercial improvements continued along the riverfront and harbor. The
legislature built a new Exchange at the intersection of Broad and Bay streets and a new
beacon and lighthouse in the harbor, while merchants constructed wharves along the
Cooper River and, for the first time, on the Ashley.14 Christopher Gadsden erected a large
new wharf on the Cooper, just north of town, "reckoned the most extensive of its kind
ever undertaken by any one man in America."15 Off South Bay Street, William Gibbes
wharf extended over 300 feet into the Ashley River. Between November 1768 and
November 1769 Charleston merchants exported over 123,000 barrels of rice and 380,000
hogsheads of indigo from Charlestons wharves. These two great staples represented 85

Despite such outward symbols of economic prosperity, the Southern metropolis
did not lack substantial social problems, however. In addition to difficulties with the
poor (which will be discussed), Charleston had insufficient and overcrowded jails, a
workhouse full of notorious bawds, strumpers, vagrants, drunkards, [and] idle persons,
too few public wells, street lamps, and public stocks, too many vagrants, taverns, filthy
streets, and bad roads, and an undermanned and underpaid town watch. Governor
Montagu complained to London that "building a jail is a thing that is become now
absolutely necessary, as the present one is so old and weak that the prisoners are
frequently breaking out."17 The city lacked an adequate police force, and disgruntled
citizens seeking police assistance often found the Watch House on the comer of Broad
and Meeting streets empty.18 Charleston's narrow streets contained "all kinds of filth,"

while horses and cattle fed openly in the streets "to the great annoyance of the
inhabitants."19
Charlestons growing population consisted of four separate and distinctly unequal
ranks: the elite, artisans and mechanics, common laborers, and slaves.20 A ruling elite of
merchants, planters, and lawyers governed the city and dominated its political and social
institutions.21 The Commons House of Assembly, the lower house of South Carolinas

Carolina Gazette and Country Journal. June 20, 1775.
20The use of the term rank instead of class follows the lead of Gary B. Nash,
Edward Countryman, and Stuart M. Blumin, who all argue that eighteenth-century society
was organized vertically into ranks rather than horizontally into layered, antagonistic
classes. Blumin writes that the term ranks identifies the flow of influence, patronage,
and deference within this system of interests, rather than the experiences and
consciousness of separate classes. My account of Charleston in 1765 agrees with
Blumins description of eighteenth-century society as profoundly elitist in its recruitment
of political leadership and in its assignment of social prestige. Stuart M. Blumin, The
Emergence of the Middle Class: Social Experience in the American City. 1760-1900
(Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1989), 17. Gary B. Nash warns that
eighteenth-century society had not yet reached the historical stage of a mature class
formation, but nevertheless believes that historians can understand more fully the
origins and meaning of the American Revolution by analyzing the changing relations
among people of different ranks and examining the emergence of new modes of thought
based on horizontal rather than vertical divisions in society. Gary B. Nash, The Urban
Crucible: The Northern Seaports and the Origins of the American Revolution Abr. Ed.

2IA note is in order here about the use of the papers of members of the governing elite
in this project, particularly the papers of Henry Laurens. Few of the papers of prominent


23
colonial legislature, remained the exclusive enclave of these wealthy aristocrats
eighteenth-century South Carolinians have survived. The most notable exceptions are the
papers of Henry Laurens, David Ramsay, and to a lesser extent, Christopher Gadsden.
The Laurens Papers are an indispensable source for the student of Revolutionary
Charleston and this project, like most recent works on eighteenth-century South Carolina,
extensively utilizes this primary source, particularly in the first three chapters. Laurens
was a successful merchant-planter in colonial and Revolutionary Charleston and played a
prominent role in the Revolutionary movement in South Carolina. He maintained a vast
political and commercial correspondence and commented on almost every aspect of the
Revolution on a local, regional, and national level. This correspondence is preserved in
the Henry Laurens Papers in the South Carolina Historical Society in Charleston and is
currently being published by the University of South Carolina Press. Similarly, David
Ramsay served in the Confederation Congress and was active in Charleston affairs in the
1780s and 1790s. His published post-war correspondence has been particularly helpful in
illuminating events discussed in the last three chapters. Christopher Gadsden was another
successful merchant who played a conspicuous role in the Revolution. His extant papers
are much thinner than those of Laurens and Ramsay, but it too has been collected and
published. Biographies of prominent eighteenth-century South Carolinians are rare
because so few of their personal and business papers survive. The few biographies that
have been written over the last thirty-five years by necessity tend to focus either on public
rather than private lives (life and times biography), or on prominent families rather than
individuals. The best published works are George C. Rogers Jr., Evolution of a
Federalist: William Loughton Smith of Charleston. (1758-18121 (Columbia SC:

throughout the colonial period.22 Charleston merchants exported Southern staples to all
parts of the British empire and many places beyond and imported the manufactured goods
and luxuriesespecially the human cargoes-that Charlestons planters demanded. The
citys merchants had been growing in economic stature since the 1730s and by the 1760s
had successfully monopolized Southern trade. Their influence originated from their
beginnings as factors sent out as agents by British companies trading with the province.
Many remained in Charleston, invested their capital, took risks, and flourished as
Charleston became the most important trading center in the Southern colonies.
Charleston merchants sponsored storekeepers at the heads of rivers and ferry crossings,
where they bought produce, livestock, and commodities for shipment to Charleston.23
Most of these exports came to Charleston from the vast hinterlands of the midlands and
backcountry of South Carolina and from the neighboring colonies of Georgia and North
Carolina. Inland waterways provided the primary avenues to market, but many
inhabitants made the journey over bumpy and bad roads. Lieutenant Governor William
Bull noted in 1770 that 3,000 wagons laden with the produce of the countryside had come
to Charleston the previous year.24 Merchants and planters thus required efficient and
220f the forty-eight members of the Commons House in 1765, over two-thirds owned
property worth £5,000 sterling or more, and the other one-third owned property worth at
least £2,000 sterling or more. No artisans ever served in the colonial South Carolina
legislature. Jerome J. Nadelhaft, The Disorders of War: The Revolution in South
Carolina (Orono ME: University of Maine at Orono Press, 1981), 105. Assembly
membership required 500 acres and 10 slaves or houses and town lots valued at £1,000.

affordable transportation links to Charleston. Grand juries complained often about
dreadful conditions on public roads, while the Commons House of Assembly licensed
ferry operators and passed legislation to clear rivers and construct new roads.25
Backcountry farmers who made the long journey to Charleston sold their deerskins,
indigo, flour, wheat, hemp, and tobacco in the various city markets or to merchants and
factors, and they returned to their homes with "necessaries and luxuries from every
quarter of the globe."26
Charleston merchants maintained close ties with the Atlantic mercantile
community throughout the colonial period.27 From November to May of each year the
harbor filled with ships from all parts of the British empire, bringing manufactured goods
to the colony and returning to European, West Indian, and North American ports with rice
and indigo, the great staple crops of South Carolina. In January 1765 alone ships entered
Charleston from Havana, Montserrat, Lisbon, Jamaica, London, Bermuda, St. Kitts,
Philadelphia, St. Augustine, and Aberdeen.28 Many of the city's merchants had forged
economic links by serving as apprentices in London and returned to the province with

valuable commercial ties. Henry Laurens entered business as a clerk in the offices of
London merchant James Crokatt. After touring London, Bristol, and Liverpool in order
to establish contacts, Laurens went into partnership in Charleston with George Austin in
1749. During the Seven Years War the pair grew wealthy trading in rice and slaves.
When Austin retired and returned to England in 1762, Laurens invested in Mepkin, a
3,000-acre plantation thirty miles north of Charleston on the Cooper River, combining
rice and indigo production with his successful mercantile business. At his death thirty
years later, he owned over 20,000 acres in Georgia and Carolina.29 Gabriel Manigault
grew wealthy importing and exporting primarily with the West Indies, Philadelphia, and
New York. He began acquiring land in the 1730s, eventually owning several thousand
acres and almost 300 slaves. During the Revolution he loaned the state government more
than £650,000 before his death in 1781.30 Laurens and Manigault serve to represent the
shared interests and fluidity of Charleston's merchant-planter community. Their fortunes,
and that of their city, were inextricably linked.31

Charleston merchants supplied the planters with credit, allowing them to expand
their production through land, supplies, and above all, slave labor. The planter in turn
paid off his debts in the winter when he brought his staples to Charleston. One visiting
Newport merchant observed the intimate ties between Carolina planters and Charleston
merchants. "The merchants who import merchandise from Europe supply the planters
both by the piece and retail, he wrote, and what they do not have stored in their shops
they will obtain from others. Planters often refused to do business with anyone but his
merchant. This is so much so that although elsewhere they offer him what he needs more
cheaply, he does not change."32
The citys planters grew on their surrounding lowcountry plantations the rice that
fed much of Northern Europe and the indigo required by the burgeoning British Industrial
Revolution. Parliament placed rice on the enumerated list in 1705, requiring the article to
be shipped directly to England before reexport to any other port. In 1730 the British
relaxed the restriction somewhat, allowing direct shipment to all ports south of Cape
Finisterre on the northwestern coast of Spain.33 In 1765 Charleston exported more than
107,000 barrels of rice. By 1770 rice exports had expanded to 131,805, an increase of
215 percent since 1730, and the highest figure reached during the colonial period. In fact,
Charleston served as the rice port for the American colonies: Between 1765 and 1774
Charleston exported an average of 83 percent of all rice shipped from the colonies [see

Table 1-3].34 Merchants sent most of the rice to Great Britain, where British traders then
re-exported the bulk to Northern Europe. Of the rice exported in 1766,46 percent went
to England, 29 percent to ports south of Cape Finisterre, 14 percent to the British West
Indies, 4 percent to other American colonies, 4 percent to other West Indian islands, and
3 percent to Scotland.35 By 1775 rice ranked behind only tobacco and flour as Americas
most valuable export.36 Britains growing cloth industry fueled the demand for Carolina
indigo, and Parliament placed a six pence per pound bounty on the crop in 1748. The
subsidy made indigo planting profitable, and production flourished, expanding from a
small beginning of 5,000 pounds exported in 1746 to more than 335,000 pounds in 1765.

Indigo production peaked in 1775 at 1.1 million pounds [see Table 1-4].37 Planters also
grew tobacco, hemp, silk, wine, oil, barley, wheat, flax, cotton, and ginger.38
The close ties planters maintained with Charlestons merchants and lawyers
ensured that the Carolina elite developed a community of shared values, as Robert M.
Weir has noted.39 Charleston lawyers, often educated in London, primarily served the
citys merchants in securing debts. All of the colonys lawyers practiced in Charleston
since no other courts existed outside of the coastal capital. Many lawyers, of course,
doubled as planters or merchants as well.40 The elite further cemented their hegemony

Carolina ports from 1765 to 1775. Charleston figures are based on the Census Bureau's
estimate that South Carolina ports other than Charleston averaged 7.8 percent of the
colony's total for 1768-1773 [Historical Statistics. 2:1189n1. Using this figure, an
estimated 261,924 pounds of indigo was exported from Charleston in 1765, and 873,316

and their ties through selective marriages with other prominent families.41 These links
also served to reinforce the citys position as the political, social, and cultural center of
the colony. Most planters owned houses in Charleston and spent much of the year there.
They escaped the malarial conditions of their plantations during the summer, attended
sessions of the Commons House of Assembly, and enjoyed the season of social and
cultural activities which coincided with the busiest months of commercial activity.42
Members of the elite joined together socially at the Monday Night Club, the Hellfire
Club, or the Friday Night Club, or at meetings of fraternal organizations such as the
Freemasons. The citys benevolent organizations included the St. Andrews Society, the
St. Georges Society, and the South Carolina Society. In addition, the elite congregated at
the Charleston Library Society, the New Market racetrack, and at various balls, dances,
plays, assemblies, and taverns.43 The city contained a number of houses of worship,

while King Street housed the Quaker meeting. The citys growing Jewish population
established the Beth Elohim Synagogue in 1749.45
Wealthy merchants, planters, and lawyers governed the city through the Commons
House of Assembly until 1783, and during the colonial period none but planters,
merchants, or lawyers ever sat in this body. By 1765, the Commons House had become
the most powerful branch of government in the colony. The delegates jealously guarded
their rights against all royal encroachments.46 The Commons House set all general
property and income taxes, export duties, import duties on slaves, and appointed all tax
collectors as well as the colonys treasurer, who answered only to the lower house.47

urban development, the Commons House spent a great deal of time attending to the citys
needs.48 In 1767 alone the legislature passed legislation regulating the port and harbor,
made plans to construct a new Exchange, Custom House, and hospital, extended existing
streets while laying out new ones, investigated the conditions of the city's poor, and
encouraged Charleston's trade with neighboring colonies by lifting duties on naval stores
imported from those colonies. In addition, legislators mediated a dispute between
merchants and owners of wharves, extended Meeting Street north to George Street, and
built a bridge over the creek near Craven's Bastion at the north end of the Bay.49
The Commons House passed all laws pertaining to the city, though the day-to-day
governance of the city fell to various commissioners elected annually on Easter Monday.
Voting requirements remained unchanged since 1721. All free white Christian males
over 21 years of age who had lived in South Carolina for at least a year, owned at least
fifty acres of land, or paid twenty shillings a year in taxes could vote.50 Voters elected
city commissioners for the two urban parishes, St. Philip's, created in 1704, and St.
Michael's, formed in 1751 out of the southern half of the city, below Broad Street.
Churchwardens, usually merchants, oversaw the maintenance of the city's poor.
According to Blaine Brownell and David Goldfield, the planter "urban consciousness
consisted of plotting an escape from Charleston before the first mosquitoes and after the
last party. Associational activity probably consisted of dipping snuff at the St. Cecilia's
Society." Blaine Brownell and David Goldfield, "Southern Urban History," in Brownell
and Goldfield, City in Southern History. 8-9.

Firemasters, also generally merchants, ensured that residents kept buckets and ladders
near at hand and inspected buildings for potential hazards. Packers, mostly master
coopers, inspected the packing of exports on the city wharves. Wood measurers,
primarily artisans, safeguarded the city against exorbitant rates for wood and coal. The
commissioners of markets and the workhouse collected fees for market stalls, enforced
sanitary regulations, and also oversaw the workhouse, where the city housed sick folk,
criminals, indigents, and runaway slaves. Finally, the commissioners of roads supervised
the paving and cleaning of streets and set prices for haulage. Voters generally elected
both merchants and artisans as market, workhouse, and road commissioners.51
The artisans who served without pay in these positions represented the middling
sorts, below the governing elite.52 Though politically mute for most of the colonial

period, these workers nevertheless asserted themselves through their craftsmanship, and
the fruits of their labors could be seen, heard, and smelled throughout the city. These
craftsmen and women catered to the needs of the merchant-planter community, provided
food and drink in the city, brewed beer, baked bread, butchered meat, designed and built
lavish homes, painted houses, portraits, and coats of arms, fashioned clothes, furniture,
shoes, watches, wigs, coaches, silver, jewelry, tanned hides, repaired guns, built ships,
and packed staple crops to be shipped out for export. The exact number of Charlestons
artisans in 1765 is unknown, but artisans comprised 25 percent of Charleston households
in 1790. Between 1764 and 1807, nearly 2,500 artisans worked in the city.53
As the citys middling rank, artisans labored in the gray area between the
merchant-planter oligarchy and the large black population. Skilled white artisans
complained bitterly about the competition they faced from black labor, but many white

artisans invested in slaves because of the scarcity of free labor in the city. Recent
scholarship suggests that 81 percent of all artisans between 1764 and 1780 owned at least
one slave, though they possessed only 11 percent of inventoried wealth.54 British
mercantilism also worked against artisanal interest. Charleston craftsmen could not
compete with their counterparts in London nor did the citys elite encourage them to do
so. Opulent planters demanded the finest craftsmanship the mother country had to offer,
and the city's merchants eagerly imported English-made goods, all the while depriving
domestic artisans of customers and profits. Royal officials even required Carolina
governors to verify the subordinate position of American manufacturing. After a
thorough search of the public records, William Bull assured the Board of Trade in 1768
that no public assistance had ever been given to encourage manufactures. He noted that
while many backcountry homes kept looms to weave cloth for their own families, the
government gave public assistance only to agricultural improvements. "Attempts to
establish [manufactures] here, he wrote, can never succeed to any degree, where there
is so much room to employ labor in agriculture and trade with more profit."55
Artisans thus welcomed and encouraged non-importation of British goods when
disputes over colonial taxation erupted in the latter half of the 1760s, and in some
measure they indeed acted as the "advanced guard of rebellion."56 The Revolutionary

movement offered artisans the opportunity to eliminate or at least curb the economic
hegemony of their overseas competition, and in 1769 Charleston's mechanics demanded
and received equal representation on the committee that enforced compliance with the
colonial boycott. The artisanal community had always been shut out of provincial
politics, but the Revolution would shatter the chains of deference that had kept them so
long in silence.57
The third rank of Charleston society consisted of common laborers and the citys
poor. Though unskilled workers often found employment on Charlestons wharves and
with skilled artisans, they faced unending competition from the citys ubiquitous slaves.
While Charleston's elite grew wealthier during the 1760s and 1770s, the growing number
of urban poor taxed the limits of the citys institutions of relief, as they did in
contemporary Boston, New York, and Philadelphia.58 The Rev. Robert Smith of St.
57Most of the artisans owned property, and many could therefore vote under the
suffrage requirements of the act of 1721. Many also sat on Grand Juries and could
therefore voice their complaints through that vehicle. But no artisan ever served in the
Commons House of Assembly.

Philips parish (which oversaw the care of the poor) requested the use of soldier's
barracks in 1766 to relieve the overcrowded workhouse, which also served as a jail.
Smith complained about the inhuman policy of housing violent prisoners with "the poor
and sick, who may be, and often are, pious and well disposed persons."59 While exported
staple crops continued to enrich city planters and merchants, wealth became increasingly
concentrated between 1757 and 1762 due to the Seven Years War.60 Consequently, tax
rates to support increasingly ineffective institutions rose as well. Poor rates soared in the
1760s and 1770s, rising from £3,000 in 1755 to £6,500 in 1765 to £14,000 in 1775.61
Alarmed legislators investigated and blamed the problem on vestry and church wardens
who failed to return the poor to their home parishes. In addition, they found that many
arriving immigrants bound for the backcountry simply remained in town.62 Grand Juries
frequently complained about the rising numbers of the destitute and continually requested

provinces" and further increasing the tax rate.63
Slaves, of course, occupied the bottom rung of Charleston society. The city had
the largest black population of any city on mainland British North America during the
Revolutionary period [see Table 1-5]. Blacks comprised half of the citys residents in
1765 and 61 percent of the entire colony. Despite persistent white fears of a growing
black population, the percentage of slaves in the citys population remained steady
between 1760 and 1810, ranging from 51 to 54 percent [see Table 1-6]. The black
majority in the lowcountry as a whole between 1775 and 1810 varied from 73 to 84
percent of the total population [see Table 1-7].64 The city served as a major port of entry
for slave traders in the American colonies, and Charleston merchants imported almost
42,000 slaves between 1760 and 1774.65 In 1765 alone 106 cargoes entered the port with

a total of 6,520 slaves [see Table 1-8].66 One Charleston visitor insisted that he had been
mistakenly taken by his guide to Africa.67
White and black intermingled constantly in a city where 8,000 people occupied
the space of a few square miles and residential segregation was unknown. It seemed to a
visiting Frenchman in 1777 that "one will meet seven or eight coloured men on the street
for every European that he encounters."68 Slaves could be found throughout the city,
working on ships and wharves, driving coaches, cooking and waiting tables, hired out and
apprenticed to artisans, working illegally for themselves in competition with white
artisans, and serving as common laborers. Timothy Ford, a New Jersey native visiting
after the Revolution asserted that "in this country a person can no more act or move
without an attending servant than a planet without its satellites." "I have seen tradesmen,
he wrote, "go through the city followed by a negro carrying their toolsbarbers who are

supported in idleness and ease by their negroes who do the business, and in fact many of
the mechanics bear nothing more of their trade than the name."69 Elite Charlestonians
might resent the rising numbers of poor whites, but they complained most frequently
about the behavior of their slaves. They protested that slaves sold in the citys markets,
hired their own time, congregated in large numbers, frequented taverns, cursed and swore
in the city streets, refused to work, dressed inappropriately, gambled, and always seemed
to behave in an insolent manner. One inhabitant wondered if "the laws of this province
extend to the punishment of vices in Negroes?" Greater economic opportunity and less
white supervision combined to give urban slaves more autonomy than their rural
counterparts, and many whites considered Charleston's slaves more "rude, unmannerly,
insolent, and shameless" than country slaves.
Charlestons large slave population kept whites constantly on edge. Lieutenant
Governor William Bull maintained in 1770 that "the state of slavery is as comfortable in
this province as such a state can be," but anxious planters feared that the lure of freedom

would "raise ideas in [slaves] of an interest opposite to their masters."71 South Carolina
had weathered the Stono Rebellion of 1739, but fears of another, more widespread,
uprising always bubbled beneath the surface.72 In December 1765, rumors spread through
Charleston of an impending slave revolt during the Christmas season, traditionally an
extended holiday for slaves. Provincial authorities quickly called out the militia, while
Lt. Governor Bull brought down forty-seven Catawba Indians from the backcountry to
hunt down and kill the supposed rebels.73 Henry Laurens described the scene in
Charleston: "Patrols were riding day and night for 10 to 14 days in most bitter weather
and here in town all were soldiers in arms for more than a week." This uprisinglike so
many othersfailed to materialize, and Laurens noted wryly that the whole affair ended
with the "banishment of one fellow, not because he was guilty or instigator of
insurrection, but because some of his judges said that in the general course of his life he
had been a sad dog, and perhaps it was necessary to save appearances."74 This incident is
suggestive of the tensions and fears created in a city with a population half slave. Despite

white assertions that mutual bonds of affection existed between happy slaves and kindly
masters, the slightest rumors of unrest could set off widespread panic.
Timothy Ford described an incident which gives great insight into the intimate
links between slavery and status in South Carolina. While returning to town after visiting
a local plantation, Ford and his friends stopped for a picnic beside the road. At some
distance off, a man appeared on horseback, and the locals all commented upon the fine
cut of his clothes and his expert horsemanship. "As we were all surveying and querying
who he should be, Ford wrote, one of the company finished the enquiry by saying 'he
cannot be a gentleman for he is riding without servants.'" Soon, however, two slaves on
horseback emerged from the woods, and the stranger "regained his lost honours, and it
was agreed on all sides that he is a gentleman."75 The New Jersey native found the whole
scene baffling. Ford simply could not fathom how ownership of other human beings
could define rank and status in society. A later visitor echoed similar thoughts: It is
strange that men should value themselves most upon what they ought to be most ashamed
of.76 Slaves did not simply represent another form of labor. Their overwhelming
presence in both the city and countryside was inextricably linked with the way white
South Carolinians created their own identity. In the years to come whites would view any
challenge to the institution, from any quarter whatsoever, as a direct threat to the social
and economic system that formed the very heart of their society.

Charlestons reaction to the Stamp Act, though labeled cautious and
conservative by some historians, certainly frightened contemporary royal officials and
the citys elite and upset traditional notions of political participation, deference, and
social order.77 Some negroes mimicked their betters in crying out liberty, while angry
crowds threatened to pull down the homes of royal officials and forced their way into
Henry Laurens' home to search for stamped papers.78 The official elite reaction was, of
course, much more subdued. Merchants, lawyers, and planters disagreed among
themselves over a proper response to the Stamp Act, particularly after violence followed
resistance in Northern ports.79 Henry Laurens thought such uprisings disgraceful and
urged Carolina authorities to prevent any "apings and mockery of those infamous
inglorious feats." While Laurens did not support the Stamp Act, he felt that only a
decent, respectful representation would bring about redress. "The Act must be executed
and indeed a suspension of it while it is in force would prove our ruin and destruction,"
he cautioned. Conversely, attorney Richard Hutson blasted Charlestonians as indifferent
while applauding the "laudable example of the northern provinces in endeavoring to repel

the manifest encroachments on their liberty."80 In July the Commons House responded
favorably to Massachusetts' invitation to send representatives to a Stamp Act Congress in
New York the following October. The assembly elected Thomas Lynch, Christopher
Gadsden, and John Rutledge, all established members of Charleston's elite. Rutledge
practiced law in Charleston and invested heavily in land, obtaining over 30,000 acres by
1775. Lynch owned three plantations and a townhouse in Charleston and invested as
part-owner of three trading vessels. Gadsden, of course, was one of the city's most
successful merchant-planters.81
Meanwhile, as the Stamp Act Congress deliberated in New York, the stamped
paper arrived in Charleston on Friday, October 18, 1765, with the act set to take effect on
November 1. Local Sons of Liberty, comprised primarily of artisans and mechanics,
moved swiftly to resist British policy. The following morning two effigies of a stamp
collector appeared hanging from a twenty-foot gallows at the comer of Broad and Church
streets, near Dillon's Tavern, in the center of town. Onlookers passed by all day to see the
figures with "LIBERTY and no STAMP ACT" printed on them, while the muffled bells
of St. Michael's tolled mournfully. That same evening Stamp Act protesters cut the
figures down, placed them in a wagon, and moved down Bay Street toward Tradd Street

and the home of stamp inspector George Saxby, followed by a crowd estimated at two
thousand. Cooler heads barely restrained the crowd from demolishing the house, and
after searching the grounds and breaking the windows the procession moved on to the
City Green. There the protesters set the effigies on fire and solemnly buried American
Liberty in a mock funeral as the flames rose into the night sky.82
Five days later, on Wednesday, October 23, rumors circulated that the stamps had
been brought into town and placed in Henry Laurens' home in Ansonborough, a suburb
just north of Charleston.83 Laurens had opposed earlier street demonstrations, and that
evening at midnight a crowd of protesters awakened Laurens by pounding violently on his
front door. The startled merchant assured the crowd that he had no stamped paper, and
Laurens, as a member of the gentry, expected to be taken at his word. Instead, the crowd

protests had taken place previously in Boston on August 14, and in Newport on August
27-29,1765. See Peter D. G. Thomas, "The Stamp Act Crisis and Its Repercussions,
Including the Quartering Act Controversy," in Jack P. Greene and J. R. Pole, eds., The
Blackwell Encyclopedia of the American Revolution (Cambridge: Blackwell Publishing,
1991), 117. These Stamp Act demonstrations of street theater and ritual protest were
played out repeatedly in colonial capitals and have recently been called by David
Waldstreicher "the first and most important example of celebration and mourning as loyal
protest." Such protests were performed in the name of English tradition, and its guardian,
the king. "With the king on their side, the lower classes could take the rhetorical high
ground, even against the king's men." Only later, after the Declaration of Independence
and the rejection of England, were colonial grievances thrust upon the King himself.

demanded entrance to his house; Laurens, fearing for his and his pregnant wife's safety,
obeyed. After the crowd had searched the house in vain, the insurgents remained in
Laurenss front parlor and demanded that he swear that he did not know the location of
the stamps. When Laurens refused the crowd threatened him with violence. The standoff
continued for over an hour before the dissidents finally gave up and left. As they did,
"they praised me highly and insisted upon giving me three cheers and then retired with
God bless your honor, Good night Colonel, We hope the poor lady will do well."84
During the ordeal Laurens recognized several of his accusers despite their disguises, and
he called many of them by name. But despite words of bravery, the intrusion left Laurens
shaken and stunned.85 Such an overt and direct threat to private property, social order,
and political deference could not go unchallenged and Laurens complained directly to the
lieutenant governor. Bull responded by calling a Council meeting, advising captains in
port to keep their sailors aboard ship at night and announced to the public that he had
lodged the stamped papers in Fort Johnson in Charleston Harbor. Bull privately fumed
that the artifices of some busy spirits had poisoned the minds of men with the
principles imbibed and propagated from Boston and Rhode Island.86

The following Monday Bull and other elite leaders witnessed more street theater.
Stamp inspector George Saxby and stamp distributor Caleb Lloyd, having spent two days
virtually imprisoned in the fort, came up to town to face a multitude of protesters
threatening to tear them to pieces. The trembling pair pleaded that they would do nothing
until Parliament had addressed colonial grievances, and the assembled throng roared its
approval. The harbor rang with cheers, clanging bells, and cannon fire, and the crowd
escorted the stamp officials first to Dillon's Tavern and later to their own homes. Saxby
and Lloyd meekly explained to London that their lives and property had been repeatedly
threatened, and they had acted only to prevent "murder and the destruction of the town.87
Opposition to the Stamp Act eventually closed down the Souths busiest port.
Trading came to a halt, and as crops went unsold, money grew scarce and debts went
unpaid. Though ships kept arriving they could not leave, and more and more sailors
crowded into town. Charleston faced an explosive situation, and merchants pleaded with
their London agents to lobby for repeal. Lt. Governor Bull, at the center of the storm,
received enormous pressure from various groups to open the port without stamped paper,
as Virginia and other colonies had done. Eventually Bull acquiesced. He simply declared
stamped paper unavailable, opened the port, and tensions gradually eased.88 On May 3,
1766, unofficial news arrived that American resolve had been rewarded and that
Parliament had repealed the act. Christopher Gadsden nearly fainted when he heard the

report, and according to one witness "joy, jollity and mirth" reigned throughout the port.
Official confirmation coincided with the traditional celebration of the king's birthday in
June.89 Bells rang throughout the city while ships in the harbor displayed their colors and
fired cannon. The city's militia regiment, artillery company, and a new company of light
infantry all assembled on the parade ground for review by Lt. Governor Bull. Later that
evening, Bull hosted a dinner at Dillon's Tavern, attended by both houses of the
legislature, local clergy, and all civil and military officers. Fireworks ended the festive
day, and royal officials could rest assured that "the inhabitants of this province are a loyal
and a grateful people."90
The Stamp Act crisis had passed, but it exposed dangerous fault lines in the citys
social and political facade. From the early 1750s through the early 1770s, Charleston's
population doubled, with poor white inhabitants increasing at the fastest rate. The Stamp
Act crisis simply accelerated existing social trends. The collapse of business swelled the
ranks of the poor, and made a bad situation even worse. Institutions designed for poor
relief, insufficient before the crisis, had been completely overwhelmed by December
1766. Runaway slaves, disorderly sailors, and the poor all crowded into the workhouse.

As poor tax rates increased, city fathers desperately sought ways to control a population
that appeared to be growing dangerously out of control.91
The Stamp Act crisis also gave vent to backcountry grievances against lowcountry
arrogance and Charleston hegemony. South Carolinas backcountry, despite a growing
population, elected only four of forty-eight assemblymen in the Commons House.
Charleston alone had six representatives. The backcountry also lacked efficient and
adequate law enforcement and educational institutions. Charleston leaders and
lowcountry legislators in the assembly acknowledged the lack of courts, jails, sheriffs,
and schools, but resisted spending their tax money on backcountry improvements.
Hence, when coastal leaders denounced the Stamp Act as British oppression, the
backcountry exploded in anger. Charles Woodmason, an upcountry clergyman and
popular spokesman, sneered that "while these provincials were roaring out against the
Stamp Act and impositions, they were rioting in Luxury and Extravagance." Woodmason
ridiculed the hypocrisy of "men who bounce and make such noise about Liberty! Liberty!
Freedom! Property! Rights! Privileges! while they ride, oppress, distress and keep under
the lowest subjection half of the inhabitants."92 For those who cared to see them, the
Stamp Act crisis exposed the first signs of conflicts that would rage on for years.

The American Revolution presented both enormous challenges and unprecedented
opportunities for all Charlestonians. As members of the citys elite gathered in Dillon's
Tavern to celebrate the King's birthday and the repeal of the Stamp Act on that summer
evening in 1766, few could have imagined that the Stamp Act crisis had thrust all ranks
of Charleston society upon the brink of enormous changes. Yet, as Gordon S. Wood has
recently written, when eighteenth-century Americans set out to change their governments,
they changed their society as well.93 Once down the road of rebellion, the elite found to
their horror that everything that gave their world stability and identity had come under
assault. The citys plain mechanics and industrial artisans may have worked with their
hands rather than their minds, but during the coming years they would take to the streets
and raise their voices in protest against British mercantilism, elite economic policy, and
time-honored notions of aristocratic dominance. Ultimately they rejected deferential
politics altogether and embraced political equality and self-interested democracy.
Religious dissenters attacked the established church. Backcountrymen, not content to
simply condemn lowcountry hypocrisy, would demand a more egalitarian government
and the removal of the capital to a centralized, plebeian, location. Finally, and perhaps
most ominously, a chorus of rising voices from both within and without the region
challenged white South Carolinians right to own other human beings. The Revolution in
Charleston was not cautious or conservative. In fact, it forever altered not only the
Gordon S. Wood, The Radicalism of the American Revolution (New York: Alfred A.
Knopf, 1992), 5.

relationships that bound Carolinians together, but also the citys position of unchallenged
dominance in the colony and region.

Between 1766 and 1775 a series of overlapping crises propelled Charleston
toward social, political, and economic revolution and armed rebellion against the Crown.
If South Carolina's colonial elite prided themselves on "the harmony we were famous
for,"1 the events of the late 1760s and early 1770s must have seemed like a nightmare.
The debate over the proper response to British policy shattered the cohesion of

Charlestons traditional leaders and turned resistance into revolution as the citys
middling ranks seized the opportunity to make unprecedented challenges to elite
authority. Charlestons artisans, like their counterparts in Boston, Philadelphia, and New
York, asserted their economic self-interest and adamantly supported non-importation in
defiance of conservative merchants. As the epicenter of resistance in South Carolina,
Charlestons urban milieu accelerated the transition from deferential elite politics to self-
interested democracy. The recognition of self-interest in American politics emerged as
one of the most radical political innovations of the American Revolution, for it
challenged traditional notions about communalism, political deference, and economic
self-interest.2
This interpretation is supported by most of the recent scholarship on the
Revolution in the urban North but contradicts the prevailing interpretations of the
Revolution in South Carolina. Gary B. Nash found that in the urban North the
Revolution accelerated existing demographic and economic trends and turned resistance
into a "dual revolution," replacing vertical with horizontal divisions.3 Similarly, Charles
F. Olton argues that Philadelphia's artisans exchanged "shy deference" for an increasingly
active role in city politics after 1765. Artisans protected their economic self-interest by
actively supporting non-importation of British goods, and merchant intransigence led
them to organize in associations to air their political and economic grievances. They

sought not social revolution but political inclusiveness, which they had accomplished, he
wrote, by 1777. This growing artisan assertiveness, Olton argued, emerged as "one of the
most striking events in the history of Philadelphia in the eighteenth century."4 Edward
Countryman uncovered analogous behavior among artisans in Revolutionary New York,
who took to the streets to assert their demands and stretched the fabric of New York
until it rent even while they helped to do the same thing to the British empire." The
Revolution brought great changes to the city, and Countryman finds that by 1790 New
York society had been transformed.5 Charles G. Steffen and Dirk Hoerder found that
artisan agitation in Baltimore and Boston produced similar results in those cities.6
Conversely, Mary Catherine Ferrari, a student of Southern urban artisans, asserts that
during the non-importation movement of the late 1760s Charleston's artisans "neither
challenged the traditional ruling powers nor did they attain cohesion among themselves."7

Similarly, David Chesnutt argues that "by the end of 1769 all sides had been placated,
[and] stability had been restored to assembly politics."8 Robert M. Weir believes that the
non-importation movement altered elite conceptions of South Carolinas relationship with
London but did not disrupt the ties between the citys various factions. Indeed, most
historians of Revolutionary South Carolina concur in the notion of the Revolution as a
conservative elite revolt that produced little social, political, or economic instability.
According to Weir, Revolutionary changes proved to be "weak and ephemeral."9

that once lowcountry families caught their breaths after restoring plantations and
businesses to order, they would have noticed remarkably little change from the war.

that neither in South Carolina nor elsewhere in Revolutionary America did the
commitment to virtuous republicanism imply rejection of a hierarchical political structure
in which men of demonstrated merit would hold the requisite authority to govern. With
independence won, the patriot rebels in the lowcountry became, overnight, the
metropolitan establishment responsible for the management of political affairs and the
preservation of both liberty and order... the Revolution was not a great divide. Only the
terms of reference changed, as one source of authority was lopped off and another
substituted in its place. Meleney, The Public Life of Aedanus Burke: Revolutionary
Republican in Post-Revolutionary South Carolina (Columbia SC: University of South
Carolina Press, 1989), 278, 281. Richard Brent Clow came to a similar conclusion in his
biography of Edward Rutledge. See Clow, Edward Rutledge of South Carolina, 1749-
1800: Unproclaimed Statesman, Ph.D. dissertation, University of Georgia, 1976,

remained firmly in the hands of traditional leaders. The same men who opened the
breach . continued in government through the war. Many members of the
conservative elite such as Laurens, the Rutledges, the Pinckneys, and the Middletons
nurtured the Revolution in its earliest phases and saw it through to its conclusion. The

This chapter explores how the enormously disruptive events of 1766-1775
shattered the stable world of Charlestons elite and turned resistance into radical
revolution. By September 1775 the economic, political, and social stability of the

confusion." The Continental Association closed the harbor to both imports and exports.
With all commerce at a halt, courts closed, money grew scarce, and debts went unpaid.
political elite was both supported and spurred to greater action by the mechanics of the
city and the more liberal elements of the backcountry, but ultimate direction and authority
lay always with the traditional leadership. Poythress, Revolution By Committee: An
Administrative History of the Extralegal Committees in South Carolina, 1774-1776,

asserts that by early assuming leadership of the opposition to British policies in the early
1760s and continuing that opposition as each new crisis occurred up to mid-1776, the
colonys political leaders greatly minimized the chances that they would be upset in an
internal revolution. Denboer, The Early Revolutionary Movement in South Carolina,
1773-1776, M.A. thesis, University of Wisconsin, 1969, 144. Marvin R. Zahniser wrote
that to a remarkable degree the low-country gentry retained control of the government in
South Carolina after the Revolutionary War. In the political sphere, it sometimes seemed
that the war had never taken place. Zahniser, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney: Founding
Father (Chapel Hill NC: University ofNorth Carolina Press, 1967), 101. Raymond Stan-
proposed that because of the conservative leadership, the aim of the revolutionary
movement was to protect the rights of British citizens and to prevent anarchy, not to
establish a new social and political order, and that the Revolution had freed South
Carolina from British control within the state without producing an internal revolution.

Armed men in rebellion to the Crown roamed the streets, non-legal bodies governed the
city and province, and Charlestonians hastily constructed defenses against an imminent
British Naval bombardment and invasion.10 It all seemed unimaginable in 1766.
************
The repeal of the Stamp Act set off wild celebrations in Charleston in the spring
of 1766. When news of the repeal arrived on May 3, 1766, "joy, jollity, and mirth"
reigned, according to Commons House speaker Peter Manigault.11 Charlestonians
celebrated with banquets, bells, and fireworks. Almost no one noticed the Declaratory
Act accompanying the good news, which asserted Parliament's right to legislate for the
colonies "in all cases whatsoever." The Commons House of Assembly, certain that the
repeal marked a great moment in South Carolina history, commissioned a statue of
William Pitt, "the Great Commoner" who had championed American liberty, to be
erected in the center of town at the intersection of Broad and Meeting streets.12 But even

65
the most ardent foes of the Stamp Act could not imagine how quickly these celebrations
would fade into memory, to be overshadowed by the darker events of the next ten years.
The repeal of the Stamp Act had opened up the harbor, and the city bustled with
activity after the long cessation of trade. The new royal governor, Lord Charles Greville
Montagu, arrived in Charleston on June 11, 1766.13 He entered a flourishing, growing
city, and despite the upheaval of the next decade, Charleston continued to expand as a
regional center of trade and commerce. Nevertheless, the Southern metropolis did not
lack significant social, political, and economic problems. The number of the citys poor
rose alarmingly during the late 1760s, particularly as the Stamp Act crisis closed the
harbor, and poor tax rates increased accordingly.14 Simultaneously, overzealous revenue
officers began harassing Charleston merchants in an effort to enforce the letter as well as
the spirit of the Navigation Laws. Royal customs officials seized several coasting
schooners owned by Henry Laurens, and his subsequent legal troubles in the Court of
Vice Admiralty exposed the problem of corruption in the colonial administration.15 In

66
addition to social and economic problems, Charlestonians faced a storm of political
protest from backcountrymen demanding adequate judicial and educational institutions,
as well as more proportionate representation in the legislature. The populous region
elected only four of the forty-eight members of the Commons House of Assembly and
suffered from a lack of schools, jails, and law enforcement officials. The Assembly
partially placated backcountry dissidents by passing the Circuit Court Act of July 1769,
but only after the bloodshed and violence of the Regulator movement.16 Meanwhile, the
dispute over schools and especially backcountry representation remained contentious and
divisive issues for several decades to come.
As one historian has noted, the Stamp Act crisis of 1765-1766 created "a political
squall line that would eventually spawn larger storms."17 At the height of the furor in
1766, "Home Spun Free-Man" compared his fellow South Carolinians to "unbroke asses
and warned that "more sacks, more sacks are coming" if they did not resist ministerial

encroachments.18 Indeed, Charlestonians violently resisted implementation of the act as
their counterparts did in the urban North.19 Despite colonial resistance, or perhaps
because of it, "more sacks" followed anyway. Parliament passed the Townshend Acts on
June 29, 1767, taxing all glass, lead, paint, and tea imported into America effective
November 20, 1767. The Ministry intended for the acts to raise £40,000 a year in the
colonies, with the revenue earmarked for colonial defense and administration. American
dissenters charged that Parliament in fact designed the acts to demonstrate its supremacy
over colonial legislatures and to make royal officials financially independent of provincial
legislatures. The news reached Charleston via Boston on August 21, 1767.20 In
November, word arrived that Boston had resolved not to import any taxable goods. On
February 11,1768, the Massachusetts House sent out a circular letter to the other
provincial assemblies urging joint action in opposing the Townshend Acts. When
Massachusetts Governor Francis Bernard demanded that the House rescind the letter,
ninety-two members refused. Bernard retaliated by proroguing and then dissolving the
House.21 Secretary of State Hillsborough, determined to prevent a continental

Townshend Duties assembly analogous to the Stamp Act Congress, ordered colonial
governors to prevent their respective legislatures from considering the letter.
The election of 1768 marked the first time Charlestons artisans participated in the
political process. With the South Carolina Commons House of Assembly scheduled to
meet in November 1768, Governor Montague called elections for October 4 and 5.
Determined to make their voices heard in the debate over the Townshend Duties,
Charleston's artisans held an unprecedented meeting at the Liberty Tree in Isaac Mazycks
pasture on Saturday, October 1, to choose a slate of candidates for the election.22 The
artisans had been active in social organizations in Charleston but until the Stamp Act
crisis had been relatively silent regarding politics.23 Opposition to the Townshend Duties
presented Charleston craftsmen with the opportunity to strike a significant blow against
the British mercantile system, which they believed prevented them from any chance of
real prosperity. Charleston's craftsmen could not compete with their counterparts in
Britain nor did the elite encourage them to do so. Charleston's merchants grew wealthy
providing Carolina planters with the finest British manufactured goods, depriving
Charleston artisans of both profits and customers. Artisanal dissent against the
Townshend Acts therefore both promoted mechanic economic self-interest and
22As in chapter one, artisans are defined as laborers who performed skilled work with
their hands, and the term is used interchangeably with mechanic and craftsman
throughout this study. The term does not include unskilled laborers.
23The artisans founded the Fellowship Society on April 4, 1762, as a benevolent
society. See Fellowship Society Papers, microfilm, South Caroliniana Library, University
of South Carolina, Columbia. In the spring of 1768 the artisans sponsored a horse race
and a cock fight. Ferrari, "Artisans of the South," 45.

denounced elite support for British manufacturing. The artisans adopted a pragmatic
approach, however. Rather than supporting a cohort of artisans with little chance of
winning the election, they wisely chose elite candidates perceived as being friendly to
their cause. The meeting nominated five merchant-planters and one mechanic. Three of
the candidates represented the top echelon of Charleston society: Christopher Gadsden,
Benjamin Dart, and Thomas Smith of Broad Street, all successful merchant-planters.
Gadsden had emerged as the leading spokesman for the city's tradesmen during the Stamp
Act crisis. Dart had served as commissioner of the streets, workhouse, and markets, and
in addition to his trading business owned a plantation on the Ashley River. Smith had
retired from business when he inherited Broom Hall plantation in St. James Goose Creek
Parish. The other three candidates, though successful, held lesser prestige. Slave trader
Thomas Savage owned 200 acres in Berkeley County and a Charleston townhouse.
Thomas Smith Sr. had been a Charleston merchant since the 1730s. Only Hopkin Price
had been a mechanic. Price, a former tanner and cobbler, had acquired property in town
and a small plantation on the Ashley River. He had served in the Commons House since
1760, representing various country parishes, but had never represented Charleston. The
artisans considered but passed over attorney-planter Charles Pinckney, and merchant-
planters Henry Laurens, John Lloyd, and John Ward.24

Charleston voters elected Gadsden, Dart, and Savage, half of the artisan slate.
Henry Laurensone of the candidates rejected by the artisanswon election by a margin
large enough to allow him to relinquish twenty of his votes to Charles Pinckney in order
to prevent former artisan Hopkin Price from winning election. Laurens lampooned
Gadsden's meeting with the artisans as a "grand barbac given by a grand simpleton," and
he sneered at the idea of having to campaign for votes. "I walk on in the old road," he
told Governor James Grant of East Florida, and he explained that he released votes to
Charles Pinckney "to keep out a person who was thought unqualified to represent Charles
Town."25 Presumably former artisans could represent country parishes but not the grand
metropolis.
The artisans erred in choosing merchants to represent their interests, however.
Predictably, city merchants met the Massachusetts call for a colony-wide boycott of
British goods with "silent neglect."26 The Stamp Act crisis had been disastrous for
commerce, and merchants resisted cutting off all business with London. Indeed, a three-
year ban on slave importations would end in 1769, and Charleston traders anticipated a
brisk business with planters eager to buy human cargo.27 Most merchants agreed that

South Carolina should resist the Townshend Acts, but many felt that a closed port would
be the least desirable option. Nevertheless, Lieutenant Governor William Bull reported to
Secretary Hillsborough that many Charlestonians supported the "political principles now
prevailing in Boston." Even if Charleston's merchants did not personally favor non
importation, clearly most of the colonies favored some form of resistance to the latest
scheme of Parliamentary taxation. Members of the Commons House however,
disagreed over the proper response. Bull prorogued the Assembly until November 14,
1768, hoping that the absent Governor Montagu might return so that he could preside
over the brewing controversy.28 When Montagu returned he warned the House-referring
of course to the Massachusetts circularto ignore any letter it received which might have
"the smallest tendency to sedition, or by promoting an unwarrantable combination, to
inflame the minds of the people." The Commons House, sensing an executive
encroachment on its privileges, assured the Governor that it had received nothing of the
kind, and all twenty-six members present promptly endorsed the Massachusetts letter. A
furious Montagu immediately dissolved the Assembly, complaining to his superiors in
London that all of his efforts to prevent the Commons from endorsing the letter had been
in vain.29

Though the elite in the Assembly might agree to endorse the Massachusetts
circular, they could reach no consensus on non-importation. The issue divided merchants
and planters and exposed jealousies and tensions between various ranks of Charleston
society. By early 1769, a majority of planters and artisans favored non-importation.
When the Assembly lifted a three-year ban on the foreign slave trade in January 1769, one
planter urged city merchants to send the transports back to Britain. When thousands of
slaves crowded London docks and threatened to overrun the city, he said, royal officials
would have no choice but to grant American demands. In the meantime, artisans-joined
by a few planters-aggressively encouraged their fellow citizens to forego the luxuries of
a corrupt empire and purchase only home manufactures. By February their efforts had
borne fruit as artisans and planters resolved to boycott most British goods and slaves and
to begin manufacturing their own clothes. Many merchants simply ignored the informal
resolves and continued doing business as usual. By summer angry planters threatened to
boycott any trader who continued to import merchandise and slaves from Britain. In late
June the planters formalized their earlier resolves, signing an agreement not to purchase
"any manufactures of Great Britain" and at the urging of the artisans added that they
would cease to purchase slaves after January 1, 1770.30 The debate over resistance to
British policy divided the merchant-planter oligarchy, and artisans seized the opportunity
to voice their political and economic demands. Planters wishing to protect the Commons

House against the encroachments of Parliament and artisans eager to strike an economic
blow against British competitors formed an uneasy and pragmatic alliance.
By July 1769 two equally disagreeable options confronted Charlestons merchants.
They could continue to import and face the wrath of the community or cut off all trade
and face disaster. Seeking a compromise, they proposed to postpone non-importation for
one year, until January 1, 1771, to cancel all outstanding orders, and to ban all slave
importations during 1770. The artisans howled in protest over the omission of
encouraging home manufactures and promptly rejected the merchants proposal. At this
point one exasperated merchant complained publicly that the mercantile community's
choice amounted to "sign or be ruined." He argued that the nearly self-sufficient planters
and artisans actually stood to profit by non-importation. Planters could expect to profit
when prices rose for existing slaves, staple crops could continue to be exported, and
artisans could expect a booming business with British competition removed. Merchants
did not mind sacrificing to attain common goals, he wrote, but no one could expect them
to bear a greater burden than other groups.31 Finally, the various factions reached a
compromise agreement on July 22, 1769, banning most imports of manufactured goods
and slaves. Anyone failing to sign after one month faced public condemnation and
boycott. When the merchants appointed a committee of thirteen to enforce the
association, the planters and artisans did likewise, forming one General Committee of

74
seriously divided planters and merchants. But for the first time, Charleston's artisans had
obtained a measure of political equality, though admittedly only in an extra-legal body.
Nevertheless, it represented a significant step.
The non-importation movement in Charleston, and in the American colonies in
general, obtained only moderate success. In October 1769 Peter Manigault reported that
only thirty-one merchants had refused to sign the association, but many probably
endorsed the agreement from fear of communal retaliation rather than conviction.33 The
jealousies and tensions exposed during the debate over the terms of the agreement
continued during the boycott itself. The existing evidence indicates that the committee
randomly enforced the agreement, and Charlestonians made charges and countercharges
in the local press that some merchants received preferential treatment. Many merchants
continued to receive goods from Britain that had been ordered long before signing the
agreement and thus saw no reason why they could not land and sell those goods.
Disagreement erupted when the committee allowed some merchants, but not others, to do
so. The committee did not allow Alexander Gillon, for instance, to sell wine ordered in
May 1769 which did not arrive until January 1770.34 Likewise, the committee warned
Charlestonians to boycott Ann and Benjamin Mathews and advertised them as violators
of the agreement on May 31,1770. Ann Mathews charged that the goods had been
ordered before she had signed the agreement, but that John Edwards, a member of the

General Committee, had received cargoes under the same conditions and had been
allowed to sell them. Her pleas fell upon deaf ears, and Benjamin Mathews, facing
economic disaster, begged the Committee and the community for forgiveness.35
Some members of the elite objected to the prominent role played by artisans and
mechanics in enforcing the boycott. William Henry Drayton lampooned the notion that
tradesmen could sit in judgment of their betters. Scion of a wealthy and prestigious
Carolina family, Drayton attended Oxford and had been elected to the Commons House
in 1765 at age twenty-three.36 Unlike many of his contemporaries, he chose to defend the
royal prerogative in the late 1760s. In September 1769 he lashed out at the General
Committee for publishing his name as a non-subscriber by ridiculing the "profanum
vulgus." Drayton maintained that he would never take orders from a mechanic, and he
questioned why other members of the educated elite would willingly associate with "men
who never were in a way to study, or to advise upon any points, but rules how to cut up a
beast in the market to the best advantage, to cobble an old shoe in the neatest manner, or
to build a necessary house." Though he respected artisans he thought that "nature never
intended that such men should be profound politicians or able statesmen."37 Many other

merchants and planters undoubtedly shared Drayton's views but for the sake of unanimity
kept silent.
The unlettered and uneducated target of Draytons diatribe responded with
biting sarcasm. The artisans rebuttal rejected deference with a vengeance. They begged
forgiveness for using plain language, they wrote, "for it cannot be expected they should
know how to convey their thoughts in the polite and courtly manner of such a well-bred
gentleman." The proud craftsmen happily made their living by manual labor and
considered themselves "the most useful people in the community." Every man could not
expect to be so fortunate as to either marry wealth or to inherit it as Drayton had done.
Certainly he had not earned his money himself, nor, they insisted, was he capable of
doing so. The artisans argued that despite Draytons education, he would be helpless if
forced to earn bread, clothing, or shelter with his own hands. He might "hire himself as a
packhorseman in the Indian trade, serve some mechanic as a labourer, or if he behaved
himself well, he might drive a cart or dray about the streets of Charles Town." In short,
the artisans argued that they represented an indispensable part of the community, as
important in that sense as any man of inherited wealth, and stood equal to the planters'
and merchants with regard "to love for their country.1,38 Drayton nor any other member
of the elite ever responded, but the exchange reveals the social and political tensions that
the non-importation movement had brought to the surface. Undoubtedly other planters
and merchants viewed the artisanal response with suspicion, and many must have

wondered if perhaps something more important than political supremacy over Parliament
was at stake.
Parliament repealed all of the Townshend Duties except the tax on tea on April
12, 1770, and unified American resolve began to crumble shortly thereafter. The
merchants of Albany, New York, and Providence and Newport, Rhode Island, abandoned
non-importation in May. New York followed in July, Philadelphia in September, and
finally Boston in October. Charlestonians reacted bitterly to this "base desertion," and
determined to continue rigid enforcement until all of the duties had been repealed.39 "At
present we stand single in adhering to our resolutions," Henry Laurens wrote, "but I am
afraid we shall not have virtue enough to continue much longer."40 Indeed, by December
many Charlestonians realized that they could not stand alone, and at a mass meeting
presided over by Laurens on December 13, 1770, the community abandoned non
importation with the singular exception of tea. Many bitterly resented the Northern
colonies, and some talked of banning all trade with them but in the end decided against
harming Northern "landlords, farmers, and mechanics" because of Northern merchant
greed.41
The non-importation movement reduced Charleston's imports from Great Britain
by 56 percent from 1769 to 1770, and importation of slaves alone fell by 65 percent. The

British economy, however, could better withstand the loss of American trade in 1770 than
it could during the Stamp Act crisis of 1765-1766.42 Parliament repealed the Acts largely
because the taxes had failed to raise the desired revenue. There had been no
Parliamentary recognition of American rights. In the aftermath of the boycott, Charleston
planters and merchants resented their Northern urban counterparts and grew increasingly
suspicious of each other. Some merchants and factors had faced financial ruin because
planters exerted economic pressure by doing business with only those merchants who
joined their cause. Simultaneously, many planters begrudged the merchants single-
minded devotion to economic self-preservation rather than protection of American rights.
The political, social, and economic stability that had so long characterized Charleston's
governing elite had shown distinct signs of splintering in the debate over how best to
respond to the threat of British taxation.43 When the elite rose to meet this challenge to
their authority and divided over the proper response, the artisans seized the opportunity to
make their own voices heard within the realm of urban political and economic life. These
first tentative steps alarmed the traditional elite, opening a door that many feared would
be impossible to close.

The Wilkes Fund dispute began in the midst of the debate over the response to the
Townshend Duties. Though the conflict did not involve all segments of Charleston
Boston's imports fell by 48 percent, New York's by 85 percent, Philadelphia's by 70
percent over a two-year period. Sellers, Charleston Business. 217-218; Weir, Colonial

society, it is significant because it kept members of the Charleston elite in the Commons
House in confrontation with the Council, governor, and royal ministers throughout the
early 1770s while events remained quiet in other colonies. In that sense it became a
"bridge to Revolution," as Jack P. Greene described the conflict, between the events of
the late 1760s and the tea controversy of the mid-1770s.44 As the Commons House
quarreled over the most appropriate response to the Townshend Acts, Christopher
Gadsden laid a request before the Assembly from the Society of Gentlemen Supporters of
the Bill of Rights. The Society solicited funds from Americans to support British MP
John Wilkes in his legal and political battles with the King and his ministers. The
ministry had jailed Wilkes for contempt after lampooning George III in his newspaper,
The North Briton. His constituents had promptly reelected him, but the ministry refused
to allow him to sit.45 Many Americans believed Wilkes had waged a solitary battle in
England analogous to the colonial struggle. He had thus become a symbol of persecuted
political liberty and many considered him a hero. The Supporters of the Bill of Rights
had requested funds from all of the colonial assemblies, but only South Carolina
responded. On December 8, 1769, the Commons House appropriated £1,500 sterling to
the Society "for assisting in the support of the just and constitutional rights of America."46

Many members knew when they cast their vote that the measure would cause a firestorm
of controversy in both London and Charleston, and it did. Lieutenant Governor Bull
informed Secretary Hillsborough that he had been powerless to prevent the appropriation
because of the great civil indulgences granted by the crown to encourage adventurers to
settle in America." In short, the colonial legislatures had grown quite powerful over the
years at the expense of other royal officials.47 The King and his ministers considered
Wilkes a personal enemy, and George III viewed the South Carolina gift to his defense as
highly insulting. Consequently, London sent an "Additional Instruction" to South
Carolina in April 1770 forbidding the passage of any money bills without the consent of
the royal governor and council.48 The instructions also demanded that the governor and
council veto any tax bill that attempted to replace the £1,500 taken out of the Treasury for
the original gift. Suddenly graver and more important issues were at stake than the token
sum to a political dissenter. Henceforth, the Commons House of Assemblythe elected
representatives of the people of South Carolinacould not appropriate tax money without
the consent of Crown-appointed placemen.
The dispute became known as the Wilkes Fund controversy and effectively put an
end to royal government in South Carolina five years before it disappeared in any other
colony. The Commons House refused to recognize the Additional Instruction and never

passed a tax bill after 1769. The controversy revolved around two issues: the right of the
peoples representatives to draw on the Treasury without the consent of royal officials and
the right of the crown-appointed Governor's Council to sit as an upper house of
Assembly.49 In hindsight, many members of the Commons regretted the appropriation
but refused to concede the principle at issue. Speaker Peter Manigault of the Commons
House grew weary of the dispute, complaining that "I hate to hear any mention of the Bill
of Rights and the money we threw away upon them. It was always against my opinion
and has been attended with very disagreeable consequences."50 Nevertheless, the
Commons House would not back down.51 By 1772, Governor Montagu had grown
thoroughly disgusted with the now-familiar routine. He would call for elections, and the
Commons would meet and pass a tax bill that included the £1,500. The Council would
then veto the bill and the Commons would refuse to reconsider. At that point the
governor would first prorogue and subsequently dissolve the Assembly, all without any
public business having been completed. Finally, in the fall of 1772, Governor Montagu
decided to call a meeting of the Assembly in Beaufort, seventy miles south of Charleston.
He reasoned that the most obstinate members resided in Charleston and could not afford
to be absent long from there. The remaining members, he hoped, would prove more

compliant with royal demands.52 Montagu also believed that by threatening to move the
capital permanently to Beaufort he could frighten the Charleston members into giving up
the point of dispute in the Wilkes Fund controversy in order to keep the capital in
Charleston. Montagu blundered badly on all counts. In provincial minds, the royal
governor had issued a challenge to the colonys elite that they could not fail to meet.
The Assembly met in Beaufort on October 8, 1772, with thirty-seven of forty-
eight members present, a record number for the first day. Stunned by the large attendance
and unsure of his next move, Montagu kept the members waiting for two days and then
prorogued them back to Charleston.53 By now he had been warned by Secretary of State
Dartmouth that moving the legislature would be ill-advised and would only "increase that
ill humor which has already too unfortunately prevailed." When Montague informed
Dartmouth that he had in fact already called the Assembly to meet in Beaufort,
Dartmouth exploded, bitterly denouncing the Carolina governor for "throw[ing] new
difficulties in the way of an accommodation of the former subject of dispute."54 The
Commons House accused him of "a most unprecedented oppression and an unwarranted
abuse of the Royal Prerogative" and asked its agent in London to work toward Montagu's

removal. After several more skirmishes with the Commons and feeling besieged on all
sides, Montagu departed for London in March 1773 and subsequently resigned.55 The
ministry eventually removed the Additional Instruction, but the Revolutionary events of
1774-1775 superseded the issue.
The Wilkes fund dispute and Montagus attempt to move the capital fed the
growing colonial fears of corrupt and conspiratorial royal officials.56 The events
combined to stoke the fires of elite resistance in a colony where the more radicalized
elements of Charleston society had previously struggled against conservative
complacency and where traditional leaders generally refused to act until compelled by the
demands of the middling and lower ranks.
************
Shortly after Montagu sailed for London, word arrived in Charleston that local
merchants expected a shipment of tea that required payment of the dreaded tax in order to
be landed.57 Charlestonians once again divided over a proper course of action. One local
newspaper counseled that to land the tea would be a tacit admission of Parliament's right
to tax the colonies. Planter "Junius Brutus" warned of Parliaments sinister design to
"raise a revenue out of your pockets, against your consent, and to render assemblies of

your representatives totally useless."51 Some called for united community opposition,
while others thought the merchants should voluntarily refuse to accept shipment.59
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, December 1, 1773, the London sailed into port carrying 257
chests of tea consigned to merchant Roger Smith and the firm of Leger and Greenwood.60
Handbills appeared throughout Charleston the next day inviting Charlestonians "without
exception, particularly the landholders" to assemble for a meeting at the Exchange the
following afternoon.61
This meeting marked the beginning of Revolutionary government in Charleston
and the first of the various extra-legal bodies that would govern the city, and by extension
the province, for the remainder of the royal period.62 According to the local press, "the
principal planters and landholders" joined with leading artisans to demand that merchants
stop importing tea.63 Local merchants boycotted the meeting, no doubt anticipating the
planter-artisan reaction. Not to be outflanked, the assembled planters and artisans

summoned Smith, Leger and Greenwood and informed them that landing the tea would
be unacceptable. Instead, they should return the tea immediately to Britain. The
merchants had little choice but to agree, and the assembled multitude responded with
"repeated thanks and loud shouts of applause."64 The planters further proposed an
economic boycott against any merchant who continued importing tea, and the meeting
appointed a committee of five-three planters, one merchant, and one artisan-to gather
merchant signatures on an agreement pledging non-importation of tea.65 Despite the
compliance of over fifty merchants by the following afternoon, at least one planter
publicly voiced dissatisfaction that the merchants once again had to be coerced into
action.66 The merchants, meanwhile, openly resented the strong-arm tactics of the
mechanic-planter alliance. Consequently, Charleston's principal merchants gathered six
days later and organized the Charleston Chamber of Commerce to protect their interests.67
The Chamber elected John Savage, president, Miles Brewton, vice-president, David Deas,
treasurer, and John Hopton, secretary. Savage, Brewton, and Deas were prominent and
wealthy slavetraders. Hopton had served as a former clerk of Henry Laurens and entered

The committee consisted of planters Charles Pinckney, Charles Cotesworth
Pinckney, and Thomas Ferguson, merchant-planter Christopher Gadsden, and artisan

conservative faction of merchants. The fact that a committee had to be appointed to go
out and gather merchant signatures suggests that very few merchants attended the
meeting.

into partnership with Robert Powell in 1771. The planters and artisans responded by
holding separate meetings at Swallow's Tavern. The artisans, particularly upset over the
Chamber of Commerce and merchant intransigence, openly talked of forming their own
organization to oppose the Chamber.69 At yet another general meeting on December 17,
planters and artisans heatedly denounced the merchants who continued to import tea and
again resolved to prevent the landing of the tea aboard the London. Beyond that, the three
factions could not reach agreement on any general response.
In the meantime the deadline passed for paying the duty on the tea aboard the
London. Early on the morning of Wednesday, December 22, Lieutenant Governor Bull
ordered customs officials to unload the tea and secure it in the cellar beneath the
Exchange. Well aware of the communitys mood, dockworkers labored at a feverish
pace. The tea had been safely deposited by the time most of the town awoke. Furious
and embarrassed Charlestonians argued that elite dissension had delayed cooperative
action and allowed Bull to outflank the committee and land the tea. The New York Sons
of Liberty expressed outrage that Charleston alone among the principal seaports permitted
tea to be landed and described the event as ''an evil hour for America." They complained
that divisions between Charleston merchants and planters might possibly "delay the

repeal of the Revenue Act" and cause further divisions in other colonies.70 Factional
disagreement continued in Charleston, but Bulls actions spurred planters and mechanics
to create an executive General Committee designed to coordinate and direct resistance
to any further importation of tea. This General Committee could also call general
meetings of the people. On June 3, 1774, the Committee received news of the Boston
Port Bill.71 Britain had at last imposed an iron hand on the insubordinate colonies, and
Bull hoped the measure would have some happy effect towards composing the
disturbances in this province." He had never been more mistaken.72
The news galvanized Charlestons planters and artisans into action. They now
made a conscious effort to broaden resistance from primarily local mass meetings to a
gathering with colony-wide representation, hoping that the country representatives would
counteract the conservative merchants of the city. Christopher Gadsden told Samuel
Adams in Boston that members of the trading part have separated themselves from the

cargos of food and fuel. The bill also stationed customs officials in Salem rather than
Boston, and closed the port until Boston reimbursed the East India Company for the tea
destroyed in the Tea Party. See Laharee. Boston Tea Party. 184-195.

general interest and neglected our public meetings.73 After Boston proposed an
American boycott of trade with Britain, Charlestons General Committee called for a
provincial meeting of citizens for July 6, 1774. The urban planter-artisan alliance hoped
to unite with country members in support of non-importation. Unyielding Charleston
merchants now ignored the General Meeting at their economic peril.74
The General Meeting of July 1774 represented a turning point in the
Revolutionary movement in Charleston. With the Commons House of Assembly
effectively paralyzed by the Wilkes Fund controversy, the government of the city and
colony shifted from legal to extra-legal bodies. Once firmly allied with the urban
planters, many of the citys principal merchants-particularly those in the Chamber of
Commercehad by 1774 become a conservative faction of rear-guard defenders of the
status quo. The citys artisans and mechanics repeatedly opposed the merchants by
supporting measures, such as non-importation and home manufactures, designed to
promote artisanal self-interest. In the process factional interests-horizontal loyalties-
began to replace vertical ties as South Carolinas extra-legal governing bodies became
more inclusive and less deferential. The more liberal planters-led by Gadsden, Arthur
Middleton, Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, and William Henry Drayton-joined the citys

Christopher Gadsden. 1746-1805 (Columbia SC: University of South Carolina Press,
1966), 93. Gadsden told Adams that news of the Boston Port Bill "has raised our utmost
resentment and detestation and [I] hope will produce the desired effect of rousing us from
our supineness." Gadsden to Adams, June 5, 1774, Ibid., 94.

radical artisans.75 After the General Meeting of July 1774, however, many of Charleston's
elite who had previously resisted British policy aggressively became noticeably more
moderate and conservative with the growth of extra-legal government and increased
artisan and backcountry participation.76
The General Meeting gathered in Charleston for three tumultuous days in July
1774. Newspaper publisher Peter Timothy described it as "the largest body of the most
respectable inhabitants that had ever been seen together upon any public occasion here."77
Over one hundred members attended, and for the first time backcountry inhabitants
participated in government in significant numbers. Nevertheless, because every member
could vote, the Charleston factions could pack the meeting and carry any disputed point.
The meeting focused primarily on three issues: implementing non-importation, electing
five delegates to a Continental Congress to meet in Philadelphia in September, and the
debate over the extent of the powers granted to those delegates.78 The artisans, of course,
repeatedly clamored for immediate non-importation, with the merchants and the Chamber
75Drayton, who had attacked artisan participation in non-importation enforcement in
1769, had joined the Whig cause by 1774-1775. See Snapp, William Henry Drayton;
Dabney and Dargan, William Henry Dravton and the American Revolution. 47-64.
76Henry Laurens wrote that "all agreed in one point that America is unjustly treated by
the Mother Country, but divided into parties and differing in sentiments upon the proper
means for obtaining a redress of grievances." Laurens to William Manning, January 4,
1775; see also Laurens to Richard Oswald, January 4, 1775, Papers of Henry Laurens.
10:19-23. See also Carl J. Vinnerman. The Rise of Rawlins Lowndes. 1721-1800
(Columbia SC: University of South Carolina Press, 1978), 175-194.

of Commerce consistently opposed. On the first vote the assembly rejected both non
importation and non-exportation (which the planters opposed), and the meeting agreed to
allow Congress to formulate any policy in that area. Merchants and artisans now turned
their focus upon electing congressional delegates favorably disposed to their respective
positions on non-importation. The Chamber of Commerce naturally favored more
conservative delegates who would oppose any schemes for non-importation. They
nominated planters Henry Middleton and Rawlins Lowndes, attorneys John Rutledge and
Charles Pinckney, and merchant and Chamber of Commerce officer Miles Brewton. The
artisans, led by Christopher Gadsden, accepted Middleton and Rutledge, and also
nominated Gadsden and two moderate planters, Thomas Lynch, and Edward Rutledge.79
The artisans flexed their political muscle for the first time when voting began for
congressional delegates. The merchants made a tactical blunder by marching their clerks
in a body to vote for the conservative delegation. Infuriated artisans responded by turning
out to vote in record numbers and succeeded in electing their chosen slate of delegates.
The election represented a significant step in the process of artisanal rejection of elite
deferential politics. Though artisans pragmatically nominated members of the moderate
elite as their candidates, they clearly would no longer quietly acquiesce to such blatant
political intimidation. Such altered artisanal behavior caused many of the Charleston
elite to back away from aggressive resistance to British policy.

91
Finally, the General Meeting appointed a Committee of Ninety-nine-fifteen
merchants and fifteen artisans representing Charleston, and sixty-nine planters to
represent the countryside-to act as an executive body and committee of correspondence.
A quorum of twenty-one members could transact business; thus, Charleston's delegates
could heavily influence the Committee. On the last day of the meeting several of the
merchants voluntarily committed to non-importation until Carolinas delegates returned
from Congress.80
When the meeting adjourned on July 8, 1774, Charleston's traditional leaders must
have contemplated the events of the preceding three days with a mixture of satisfaction
and fear. Certainly conservatives might have been relieved that non-importation had been
postponed, but the election for delegates to Congress must have frightened even the more
moderate members. Never had the city's artisans so openly opposed elite wishes, and
many of Charlestons traditional leaders must have recognized by mid-1774 that
resistance had taken them down a dangerous and unsure path. In resisting British policy
had they not unintentionally opened themselves up to internal revolution as well? The
Rev. John Bullman of St. Michaels Church undoubtedly voiced elite fears by vehemently
censuring artisan participation in government from the pulpit of his church. He lashed
out at the mechanic who cannot perhaps govern his own household or pay the debts of
his own contracting, yet presumed to be qualified to dictate how the state should be
governed." "Every silly clown and illiterate mechanic, he sneered, should "keep to his
