National Constitution Center:Aug 19, 2014From now until Constitution Day on September 17, we are sharing fun facts about the signers of the Constitution. Can you guess this Founding Father?
“Born in Ireland as the younger son of a baronet, I came to America as a British military officer, married the daughter of a wealthy planter, and adopted South Carolina as my home. I spent my time at the convention supporting the nationalist cause and defending the interests of southern slaveholders. Later, I served in the U.S. Senate. I was a Federalist, but I was well-known for crossing party lines and being independent in my voting.”
