Colonial Hall: Biography of Arthur Middleton (1436 words)
Arthur Middleton was the son of Henry Middleton, and was born in the year 1742, at the seat of his father, at Middleton Place, near the banks of the Ashley.
Middleton was, at this time, a man of great wealth, and both by himself and family the approaching controversy between Great Britain and her American colonies might have been viewed with great concern, had not the patriotism with which they were imbued much preferred the welfare of their country, to their private interests.
Middleton relinquished his seat in Congress, and returned to South Carolina, leaving behind him, in the estimation of those who had been associated with him in the important measures of congress, during the time he had been with them, the character of a man of the purest patriotism, of sound judgment, and unwavering resolution.
