United States Bill of Rights 1789

Charles Carroll

(19 September 1737 – 14 November 1832) Planter, businessman, signer of the Declaration of Independence (the only Roman Catholic), and U.S. Senator. Although Carroll acknowledged that slavery was “a great evil”, he ran the family tobacco producing estate with nearly 300 slaves; only one of them, his “servant Bill” would be freed by his will. Carroll was elected to the Philadelphia convention in 1787 but declined the post.
