Lachlan McIntosh
Birth: Mar. 17, 1725
Death: Feb. 20, 1806

Revolutionary War US Major General. Born in Scotland, he moved with his family to Georgia, in 1736. At the start of the Revolutionary War, he was a wealthy merchant and a leader in the independence movement in Georgia. In January 1776, he was commissioned Colonel of the Georgia Militia and repelled a British assault at the Battle of Rice Boats on the Savannah River. Promoted Brigadier General in the Continental Army, he was in charge of defense of Georgia's southern flank from British incursions from Florida. In 1777, he was in a bitter political dispute with Speaker of the Georgia Provisional Congress Button Gwinnett which resulted in McIntosh killing Gwinnett in a duel. In May 1778, McIntosh was promoted Major General in command of the Western Continental Army and he led regiments during the siege of Savannah. After the battle of Charleston in May 1780, McIntosh was taken prisoner and remained in captivity until he was exchanged in February, 1782. After the war, he was appointed a commissioner to treaty with the southern American Indian tribes and was part of the delegation that officially welcomed President George Washington to Georgia in 1791. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
