An outspoken partisan during the Nullification Crisis, Pinckney reflects that, "A little while since, and our liberty, trampled and crushed by tyranny, was struggling for its life against the gigantic power of the government. But a little while since, the Federal Constitution, the pride of our fathers, and the only hope of Southern security and peace, lay low and bleeding at a tyrant's feet." But, the crisis having passed, Carolina can now celebrate "our festival of freedom." He defends his fellow State-Rights advocates, who have been stalwart fighters against "federal usurpation," against "the stigma that has been cast upon us."
Myer M. Cohen, a prominent Charleston Jew, is listed as chairman of the Committee of the '76 Association. In his earlier years he ran a school, then became a lawyer, state legislator, and active participant in community affairs, and served in the Florida war.
