The writings of Christopher Gadsden, 1746-1805 by Christopher Gadsden( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letters and writings of Christopher Gadsden, an American Revolutionary leader. Born in Charleston, S.C., educated in England, later returned to Charleston (1746) and became a wealthy merchant. At the Stamp Act Congress (1765) he was one of the first to urge colonial union against England's policy of taxation. Gadsden served (1774-76) in the Continental Congress and favored independence. In the struggle over the South Carolina constitution in 1778 he was a radical, favoring separation of church and state and popular election of senators. He was captured when the British took Charleston (1780), and imprisonment by the British broke his health. He later helped to secure ratification of the Constitution and still later opposed the Jeffersonians. -- Columbia Enc

Facsimile copy of a letter, written by the South Carolina delegation to the first Continental Congress in Philadelphia: Gentlemen, [members of a secret committee in Charleston, South Carolina] By directions of the Continental Congress, we have sent the vessel by which this goes, to procure a quantity of gun-powder for the use of the armies actually in the field of service of America ... We entreat you to purchase all that can be bought in town ... together with as much as can be spared out of the public stock without danger to your own safety ... In order to prevent suspicion we have sent bushels of Indian corn in this vessel, which may be sold or changed for rice, in which the casks of powder may be concealed so, perhaps, as to prevent suspicion should she unhappily be unable to avoid being overtaken by a Cruizer. Signed by Middleton, Thomas Lynch, Christopher Gadsden, John Rutledge, and Edward Rutledge
