Clarion call of the American Revolution in South Carolina. His eloquence awakened the sons of his native state to their danger and brought them to arms, from the mountains to the sea. President of Provincial Congress in 1775, Chief Justice of S.C. 1776, Member of Continental Congress 1778 until his death in Philadelphia in 1779, Signer of the Articles of Confederation, he is buried here in a grave unknown and unmarked.
