Isaac Hayne tried to spend the rest of the Revolutionary War in peace after the British captured Charleston in 1780. Although he had supported independence, Hayne accepted a parole - a promise to remain neutral - in exchange for his freedom. But the British soon forced him to choose sides and declare his alleigiance to them.

In 1781, with the British losing the war, Hayne returned to the fight for independence, only to be captured after leading a raid. Desparate to keep other paroled Patriots from taking up arms again, the British executed Hayne after a trial by military tribunal.
