The Courageous Patriot

By Idella Bodie

In 1780, during the Revolutionary War, Charleston fell in the hands of the British. British officers looked for a large Charleston home to use as their headquarters. They chose the Miles Brewton House at 27 King Street. This was the home of Rebecca Brewton Motte, sister of the home's builder. The British forced Rebecca to remain in the home as serve as their hostess. This is the story of Rebecca Brewton Motte and her courageous sacrifice that helped America win its independence from England.
