We asked Sandy Slater, an assistant professor at the College of Charleston who has specialized in colonial history, to give us her list of the state’s top five American revolutionaries. They may not all be from Charleston, or even South Carolina, but their actions and decisions had a big impact on the Lowcountry — and the regular country too. Yes, William Moultrie is conspicuously missing, and Slater admits that may have been a controversial choice on her part. But some of these guys appeal to her because they’re a part of the grassroots militia that helped win the war.
