The Execution of Isaac Hayne

“One of the Exchange building’s most famous prisoners was South Carolina Patriot Col. Issac Hayne. Charged with treason, Hayne was found guilty and sentenced to death without a proper trial. He was held in a room in the provost dungeon with nothing but the coffin he was to be buried in. Although both Patriots and Loyalists protested to the British headquarters, Hayne’s execution was carried out on August 4th, 1781.”  From the Society’s CD, Revolution (see SOFTWARE).
