For the first year after the Declaration of Independence, the feud between Gov. Button Gwinnett and Gen. Lachlan McIntosh dominated the political scene in the new state of Georgia.   While Gwinnett is most known for his role as a signer of the Declaration of Independence, a detailed look into the story demonstrates his almost overwhelming ambition for military command.  Because both Gwinnett and McIntosh were loyal Whigs, the story displays a true tragedy where none should have existed.

For the rest of the story …. Button Gwinnett & Lachlan M’Intosh 1.1!
