An interest in the Georgia loyalists, which I developed during a brief residence in that state, exposed me to the fact that, except for Robert W. Barnwell, "Loyalism in South Carolina, 1765-1785" (Ph.D. dissertation, Duke University, 1941), South Carolina's loyalists in the Revolution had not been studied in any comprehensive way. Although Barnwell's study showed a firm grasp of the principal groups and individuals in the province and state who dissented from the decision to seek independence, it had not been expanded to a monograph; meanwhile, much material, particularly from British sources, had become more readily accessible, and it seemed worthwhile to undertake such a study.
