Martyr Of The Revolution
When Loyalists soldiers attacked the camp of Col. Isaac Hayne's S.C. malitia about 5 mi. W on July 7, 1781, they captured Hayne. He was soon condemned as a traitor because he had previously declared allegiance to Great Britan after the fall of Charleston. Hayne, hanged in Charleston on August 4, 1781, became a martyr to those fighting for America's independence.

Hayne Hall
The surrounding land was part of Hayne Hall plantation, home of the Hayne Family in South Carolina and Colonel Isaac Hayne (Sept. 23, 1745 ~ Aug. 4, 1781).

Rice planter, iron manufacturer, church leader and Patriot soldier, Colonel Hayne was executed by the British during the Revolution and buried here in the family cemetery.

Regarding Martyr Of The Revolution / Hayne Hall. Hayne Hall, the Isaac Hayne Tomb & House Site, is the ancestral home and burial ground of Colonel Isaac Hayne (1745-1781), a wealthy rice planter who fought for independence during the American Revolution.

Hayne was forced to sign the oath of allegiance to the British after the fall of Charleston in order to avoid being separated from his sick wife. When the British ordered him to bear arms for the King, he again joined the American forces and was subsequently captured by the enemy. His execution on the gallows by the British in Charleston aroused great indignation in both America and Europe.

The site is now maintained by the South Carolina State Park Service.
