Charles Carroll of Carrollton did not make his political debut as an elected official, but rather as "First Citizen," Daniel Dulany's chief antagonist in the Fee Bill controversy. (Carroll's public challenge to Dulany during the Fee Bill controversy in 1773 was a daring step for a Roman Catholic, and it won him the gratitude and respect of the leaders of the anti-proprietary party.) This was one of a series of "firsts" for Carroll: the first Roman Catholic to hold public office in Maryland for nearly a century, a member of the first Maryland Senate, and one of Maryland's first two United States Senators.
The only son of Charles Carroll of Annapolis, Charles Carroll of Carrollton stood heir to a vast fortune which enabled him an extraordinary education. Carroll was sent abroad for his education, first attending the French colleges of St. Omer's and Louis-le-Grand where he received a civil law degree, and then the Middle Temple in London where he was a student of English common law. Carroll returned to Maryland seventeen years later, in 1764.
In 1774, Carroll served in the Maryland Convention and on the Committee of Correspondence. He was a member of the Council of Safety in 1775, and a member of the committee which drafted the Maryland Constitution in 1776. Because of his legal disabilities as a Catholic, Carroll was not a delegate to the First Continental Congress, but did join the delegates at Philadelphia as an unofficial observer and advisor. In March of 1776, Carroll accompanied Samuel Chase and Benjamin Franklin on their unsuccessful mission to Canada. He was chosen for this venture, as John Adams later reflected, not only for his French fluency, but also because "he continues to hazard his all, his immense Fortune...and his life."
At the June 1776 session of the Maryland Convention, Carroll introduced the resolution which finally rescinded the instructions restricting the congressional delegates. On July 4, Carroll was at last selected as an official delegate to the Continental Congress. He arrived in Philadelphia on July 18 and signed the Declaration on August 2, "most willingly" manifesting his long-held intention "to defend the liberties of my country, or die with them..." He remained a delegate until 1778.
In 1800, after twenty-three years in the Maryland Senate, Carroll retired from public life, and spent the last three decades of his life as a businessman and entrepreneur. When John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died in 1826, Charles Carroll of Carrollton, Maryland's "First Citizen," became America's last surviving Signer of the Declaration of Independence.
About the portrait:
Signed by Thomas Sully and dated "T.S. 1834," this portrait was ordered by the State of Maryland in 1833, and delivered in 1834. Sully painted Charles Carroll from life in 1826 and used that portrait as a study for this full-length version. Painted two years after his death, Carroll is depicted here at age eighty-nine.

Maryland Day, March 25, 1998, 10:30 a.m.
On Being a First Citizen
President Miller, members of the Senate, ladies and gentlemen:
First Citizen is the name by which Charles Carroll of Carrollton chose to sign several articles published in the Maryland Gazette beginning in February of 1773. Carroll, legally a non-citizen who could neither vote nor hold office because he was a Roman Catholic, wrote in response to an unsigned article by the best known lawyer of the day, Daniel Dulany. Dulany held appointed office under Lord Baltimore and did not believe the General Assembly had the right to question or set the fees he charged for his services to the public. In those days public officials generally were not on salary and had to live off the fees they collected. Carroll strongly disagreed. In his first foray into the arena of public debate as 'First Citizen,' he argued that public officials were answerable to the Legislature, and that the Legislature had the right, in fact the responsiblity, to be constantly adjusting the Constitution to make it work better for the benefit of all.
Daniel Dulany had met his match. He would try to answer Carroll three more times. He even assumed the fictitious name of Antilon to help people know who he was. It was unseemly in those days for opinions expressed in print to be signed by their authors, but Dulany, on the defensive, wanted to remind his readers that he had once eloquently defended them against the hated Stamp Tax. He chose to call himself 'Antilon' which combines 'anti' and an old english word for unfair taxes, but it was to no avail.
What began as a simple exchange of views published in the Maryland Gazette by Anne Catherine Green, Maryland's first woman Printer to the State, grew into a series of eight letters in which Charles Carroll not only had the last word but also began a public career that would not end for nearly another 60 years. As First Citizen, Carroll strongly defended an independent legislature. He was among the first to advance a new concept of government that soon would sweep through the colonies like wild fire. No longer would the people of America allow themselves to be ruled arbitrarily from abroad. While extolling traditional community rights and liberties, Carroll launched a call for a radical restructuring of government based on the advice and consent of the people that led to one of the most creative experiments in defining self-government that the world has ever witnessed. Although not yet fully articulated in the First Citizen letters, Carroll was beginning to ask all citizens to think about much needed changes in the structure of government, changes that would allow people like him "freedom of speech and thought," that would prevent office holders from having seats in the Legislature, and that would ensure that taxation could not be imposed by anyone not subject to the laws passed by the Legislature. Indeed, by his words as First Citizen he was launching a crusade for a change in the very definition of the meaning of representative government that would reach far beyond his own understanding of his world and would ultimately lead to the overthrow of the evil institution of slavery on which his personal fortune depended.
To Charles Carroll of Carrollton, the Constitution was not something fixed somewhere in the distant past, consisting of principles not to be altered, changed or improved upon, but was, rather, a set of guidelines to be written down, debated, and tested by time. To Carroll and others like his cousin Charles Carroll the Barrister, Samuel Chase, and William Paca, all future members of the Maryland Senate, making government work for the good of the whole meant a thoughtful reworking of the structure of government by writing it all down, debating the results, and crafting the final product in committees separately and of the whole.
In effect, Carroll as First Citizen, saw government much as every citizen should see it today, in constant need of attention and thoughtful legislative revision.
Public life could be wearying. At one point in 1786 Carroll confided to his colleague and cousin, then Senate President Daniel Carroll, "I am heartily sick of politicks and wish to retire from all public business. I have domestic cares enough to engage my whole attention." Most public servants at one time or another probably echo those sentiments, but fortunately for Maryland, both chose to continue to serve.
Not only did Charles Carroll of Carrollton write as a 'First Citizen,' he, also lived his life as a First Citizen. With the publication of the First Citizen articles he launched a career of public service that would not end until his death at the age of 95. In fact, one of Carroll's last acts as a responsible 'Citizen' was to vote for another man who would dramatically alter the face of American politics and American democracy, Andrew Jackson.
In addition to helping draft Maryland's first Constitution and signing the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Carroll served as a member of the Maryland Senate from 1777 to 1801, and frequently as its president. He also served as one of the first United States Senators from Maryland and became one of the staunchest advocates of the B & O Railroad which did so much to further the economic development of Maryland. He taught by word and by example. He was willing to put his ideas, his fortune, and his time on the line in favor of better, more responsive government. It is in that spirit that the Maryland Senate presents the First Citizen Awards to individuals like Carroll, who have taken up the challenge to make government work better for the benefit of all.
This morning, on behalf of the Senate of Maryland, it is my privilege to present the First Citizen Awards to two distinguished Marylanders.
The first is to the departing president of the University of Maryland, William E. "Brit" Kirwan. As the Chairman of the Board of Regents eloquently expressed it, Dr. Kirwan's 34 years at the University of Maryland, beginning in 1964 as an assistant professor of mathematics, and concluding with nearly a decade as its president, is a 'legacy unmatched in the history of the University. Central to that legacy is a commitment to quality that now permeates the university and has become a great source of pride for all Marylanders.' As a former member of the faculty expressed it, Dr. Kirwan "has stood for everything. He's in favor of athletics, higher academic standards, and diversity, teaching and research. Among some people [those values] would be contradictory. Kirwan just embraced them all." It is with great regret at his leaving but with pride in his considerable contributions to the present and future of this state, that the Senate of Maryland presents William E. "Brit" Kirwan with its First Citizen award.
The second presentation this morning is to the Honorable Melvin A. Steinberg, a former colleague well known to this body for his sense of humor and productive leadership. His long career in the Senate, beginning in 1967 and concluding as president in 1987, and his eight years as Lt. Governor, are a legacy of public service in the tradition of the First Citizen deserving of the highest praise. A man of principle skilled in the art of compromise, able to evoke concensus from even the most ardent of opponents, 'Mickey' Steinberg has led the fight for the reorganization of the University of Maryland system and has championed the cause of culture in his successful efforts to save the Peabody Institute. Willing to take a stand on issues when others shied from them because they were unpopular upstairs and elsewhere, 'Mickey,' has always been an advocate of good, efficient, and responsive government, with but one further example being his concern for the delivery of effective emergency medical services. It is in appreciation for his noble career of public service and his continuing willingness to give good advice that the Senate of Maryland presents the Honorable Melvin A. "Mickey" Steinberg with its First Citizen award.
This portrait was originally placed in the Old Senate Chamber of the State House. Today it remains on display in the State House, hanging in the current Senate Chamber with the portraits of Maryland's other three Signers of the Declaration of Independence.

on the Declaration of Independence
"Grateful to almighty God for the blessing which, through Jesus Christ our Lord, he has conferred upon my beloved country, in her emancipation, and upon myself, in permitting me, under circumstances of mercy, to live to the age of 89 years and to survive the fiftieth year of American Independence and certifying by my present signiture my approbation of the Declaration of Independence adopted by Congress on the fourth day of July, in the year of our Lord, one thousand seven hundred and seventy six, which I originally subscribed on the second day of August of the same year, and of which I am now the last surviving signor -
I do hereby recommend to the present and future generations the principles of that important document as the best earthly inheritance their ancestors could bequeath to them, and pray that the civil and religious liberties they have secured to my country may be perpetuated to the remotest posterity and extended to the whole family of man."

Soon after the treaty of peace with England, the Pope's Nuncio at Paris made overtures to Congress, through Doctor Franklin, on the subject of appointing a Vicar Apostolic or bishop for the United States. On the ground that the subject was purely spiritual, and therefore beyond its jurisdiction, Congress refused to take any part in the matter. The Pope then appointed as his vicar apostolic, John Carroll, a brother of Charles Carroll, of Carrollton; the same was afterward raised to the dignity of Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church in the United States.!
