Hayne, Isaac 1745- Patriot; born in South Carolina, Sept. 23, 1745; was an extensive planter and owner of iron works; captain of artillery and State Senator in 1780. He was made a prisoner at the capture of Charleston, and returned to his home
l, and was soon made a prisoner.
Colonel Balfour, then the British commander in Charleston, hesitated about disposing of Hayne; but when Lord Rawdon arrived from Orangeburg, on his way to embark for England, pursuant to the spirit of Cornwallis's orders he directed Colonel Hayne to be hung.
This was done without even the form of a trial, on Aug. 4, 1781.
The prisoner did not anticipate such treatment until he was officially informed that he had not two days to live.
The patriot's children, ston, the lieutenant-governor of the province all pleaded for his life, but in vain.
The savage sentence was executed.
After Balfour's death, Lord Rawdon meanly tried to fix the ignominy of the act upon that humane officer.
