Excerpt from Memoirs of the American Revolution, Vol. 2 of 2: From Its Commencement to the Year 1776, Inclusive, as Relating to the State of South-Carolina, and Occasionally Refering to the States of North-Carolina and Georgia The middle of September was an eventful era, in the revolutionary history of south-carolina; for, on the 15th day of that month, the Provincial Troops, * by order of the Council of Safety, took possession of Fort Johnson, commanding the entrance of Charles town harbour - the commons-house of Assembly was dissolved, by the proclamation of Governor Campbell - and, his Excellency, alarmed for his own personal safety, left Charlestown, and took refuge on board the Tamer, sloop of war, then lying in the roads. And, on the 16th day of the same month, the treaty of pacification was interchangeably signed at the camp, near ninety-six court-house. The causes, which inﬂuenced this last event, have been set forth in the preceding chapter; and l'orihe purpose of arranging the political aspects of the Colony to the same point of time, we shall now pro oecd to review what took place in the lower parts of south-carolina during the summer; and while, the Commissioners were among the disaffected settlers, of the upper country.
