Revoluntionary War Figure. He was a wealthy young rice planter who fought for independence during the American Revolution. He returned to his home to live in the neutrality after the British captured Charleston (South Carolina) in May of 1750. Later, while in Charleston to secure medicine for his ill wife and children who were suffering from smallpox, he was forced to declare his allegiance to the British. Like many South Carolinians, Hayne returned to the fight when the tide of war turned. He was captured by British troops after leading a raid in July of 1781. To set a brutal example to precent other former Patriots from violating their neutrality, a military tribunal condemned Hayne to death as a traitor. Isaac Hayne was executed in Charleston on August 4, 1781. He was not yet 36 years old. The funeral procession then left Charleston for Jacksonboro, SC (Colleton County) to the home of his plantation - his final resting place. He is buried there along with 11 other family members.
