Disorders of War: The Revolution in South Carolina
Perhaps historians neglected South Carolina because the more populous Massachusetts and Virginia seemed more active in precipitating the Revolution and because they produced men who became presidents and vice presidents. Perhaps they were wooed by the published collections of revolutionary era documents and the massive unpublished private papers. By comparison, few of South Carolina's records have been published and few private papers have survived. There is little personal material for Christopher Gadsden, less still for John Rutledge, and less still for Alexander Gillon. This book is an attempt to help redress the old imbalance, to describe the consequences of American Independence and the Revolutionary War in South Carolina.
