 Catholic Books Review: Scott McDERMOTT, Charles Carroll of Carrollton: Faithful Revolutionary.
Charles Carroll was the only Roman Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence although he had not yet arrived at the Second Continental Congress by July 2, 1776, when the resolution of independence had been approved nor by July 4, when the Declaration itself was approved.
Nonetheless, as McDermott illustrates, the Carrolls' familial experiences of expatriation from their native Ireland and of persecution and exclusion in the British colonies certainly strengthened Charles Carroll's resolve to foster independence and religious freedom.
McDermott's biography of Charles Carroll brilliantly addresses the political, social, religious, historical and personal dynamics operating in Carroll's life and in the political and social climate of the eighteenth century British colonies, as well as many of the same factors in western Europe.
