Christopher Gadsden and Henry Laurens: The Parallel Lives of Two American Patriots

Cover
Susquehanna University Press, 2000 - 354 Seiten
A study of the lives of Christopher Gadsden (1724-1805) and Henry Laurens (1724-1792) is much more than a look at the contributions of two important, though largely neglected, heroes of the Revolution. Indeed, in these two lives, one can trace the development of the Revolution in South Carolina. Either Gadsden or Laurens, sometimes both, figured prominently in every major development in South Carolina between 1760 and 1783.
