On Sept 17, 1787, Forty -two delegates signed the Constitution. Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, Thomas Lynch and Arthur Middleton were the South Carolina digners.

The Constitution protected God -given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that had been declared in the Declaration of Independence.
