Coast Guard cutter pays visit to South Carolina

Jun 17, 2010 4:05:00 AM - thestate.com
A Coast Guard cutter named after a noted South Carolina native is paying a port visit to the state.

The 270-foot Coast Guard cutter Legare is set to arrive in Charleston on Thursday for a three-day liberty call.

It's the cutter's first visit to the state in almost three years. Its home port is in Portsmouth, Va.

The cutter was named for Charleston native Hugh Swinton Legare, who was born in 1797.

Legare served in the state Legislature and as South Carolina's attorney general. He also served as a U.S. congressman and as the 16th attorney general of the United States.
