A Patriot Marker was placed on the grave of Col. Isaac Hayne near Jacksonboro in a ceremony held Nov. 11 by the Gov. Paul Hamilton Chapter of the S.C. Society of the Sons of the American Revolution and descendants Greg Layden and Sid Gattis.
An officer in the Revolutionary War army, Hayne was hanged by the British after being captured in 1781 and being condemned as a traitor. He was buried in the garden of his plantation, Hayne Hall, near Jacksonboro. The state of S.C. recognized Hayne’s sacrifice by erecting a monument on the site in 1929, and in 1963, the state acquired the cemetery to be preserved as a S.C. State Park Service Historic Site. The site is open to the public from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. daily.
Participating in the program were Claude Dinkins, John Simpson, Frank Wood, Wayne Cousar, Tom Wilson, Ivan Bennett and SAR members.
