Robert Barnwell Rhett (1800-76) was born in Beaufort, South Carolina. His name was originally Smith, but after entering public life he changed it for that of a prominent Colonial ancestor. He studied law and became a member of the State Legislature in 1826. His posts were those of lawyer, state legislator, state attorney general (1832), U.S. representative (1837-49), and senator (1850-52). Extremely pro-Southern in his views, he split (1844) with John C. Calhoun to lead the movement for separate state action on the tariff. Rhett was one of the leading fire-eaters at the Nashville Convention of 1850, which failed to endorse his aim of secession for the whole South. When South Carolina passed (1852) an ordinance merely declaring the state's right to secede, he resigned (1852) his seat. He continued to express his fiery secessionist sentiments through the Charleston Mercury, edited by his son. Rhett was a member of the South Carolina Secession Convention in 1860, and was the author of its address to the people. In the Montgomery Convention which met to organize a provisional government for the seceding States he was one of the most active delegates, and was chairman of the committee which reported the Confederate Constitution. Subsequently he was elected a member of the Lower House of the Confederate Congress. Receiving no higher office in the Confederate government, he returned to South Carolina, where he sharply criticized the policies of President Jefferson Davis. ...more on Wikipedia about "Robert Rhett"
