About Henry Middleton

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_Middleton_(governor)

Henry Middleton (September 28, 1770 – June 14, 1846) was an American planter and political leader from Charleston, South Carolina. He was the 43rd Governor of South Carolina (1810–1812), represented South Carolina in the U. S. Congress (1815–1819). He served as Minister to Russia (1820–1830), being sent there in the first instance to replace George Washington Campbell so as to look after slave-owners' interests in the discussions preparatory to arbitration by Czar Alexander I on the question of compensation under Article 1 of the Treaty of Ghent as regards enslaved Americans who went away with British during and after the War of 1812.


His father (Arthur Middleton) and his grandfather (Henry Middleton) had both served in the Continental Congress

Middleton Place Plantation, Charleston, S.C.

This place is beautiful I remember touring it with my late husband and his Aunt and Uncle when they came to visit us while we were stationed and the Navy base back in the 1970's. The pictures really don't tell how beautiful it really is. You miss the smells of flowers. They also are not showing the whole story either of like the slave quarters. It is my understanding that the plantation was used to film Gone with the Wind. (At least that is what our guide told us.) I see the tree is still there that my late husband climbed in order to get pictures of him sitting in the tree.
There are a lot more pictures on the below sight
