ABSTRACT
The article profiles Charles Carroll, an Irish American statesman and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. By signing the Declaration of Independence, Carroll risked his entire fortune and he did so with a history of passion and pride in his stance. Following his role in the Declaration of Independence, Carroll was a key architect of the state of Maryland's constitution, and later served in that state's senate for a number of years, including two stints as its president. He also served his country as a member of Congress, but held a special place in his heart for his home state, resigning his U.S. Senate seat to hold his place in the Maryland senate, after the Congress passed a law disallowing concurrent service in a state legislature and Congress.
