This book chronicles the lives of John Ewing Colhoun (1751-1802) and his wife FLoride Bonneau (1765-1838) with emphaisa on Colhoun's multiple civic contributions to South Carolina and the nation. Their legacy includes the enabling of John C. Calhoun, Colhoun's first cousin and son-in-law. The full name index of over 400 surnames includes the Calhoun/Colhoun and Bonneau immediate family, as well as relatives, associates, clients, consituents and courtroom and political opponents, e.g., Boisseau, DeSaussure, Galphin, Gervais, Green, Kerr, Noble, Norris, Pickens, Scarbrough, and others. The book relies to a great extent on unpublished documents, particularly the Colhoun papers in the South Caroliniana Library. 371 pages.
