KIRKUS REVIEW

A biography of John Rutledge, little known American patriot and statesman, which gives full value to his importance and influence before, during and after the Revolution. From a background that promised leadership, intelligence, ability, he developed his reputation in law at a very youthful age and was ready for his responsible, constructive part in preparing and fighting for American independence. From his first public office at twenty one, as member of the South Carolina Assembly, to his last, as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, his was a life of worthwhile contributions to national unity, influencing men and politics, laws and government. A five year research backgrounds this book and results in a completely readable, satisfactory and enlightening picture of the man and his achievements against his historical setting.
