Catalogue Note

Thomas You worked from 1733 through c.1786 as a silversmith and retailer of goods and is thought to be the son of silversmith Daniel You. He is regarded as one of South Carolina's patriotic craftsman for boycotting British imports, as well as altering his shop practices in reaction to the unjust 1765 Stamp Act. He was imprisoned for several months by the British after his refusal to sign a petition to surrender during the 1780 seige of Charleston. See South Carolina Silversmiths: 1690-1860, Milby Burton, p. 203-206 for additional biographical information.
