WHO WAS JOHN RUTLEDGE?
John Rutledge was a native South Carolinian who took the prominent stage in local and national politics.
In South Carolina, he served as president from 1776 until 1778 when he resigned due to his refusal to approve changes in the state constitution.
Rutledge's Charleston residence is a beautiful three-story Federal-style single house and is a fine example of American colonial architecture.
