By one of Georgia's most prolific historians, this volume contains sketches of the lives of the following delegates from Georgia to the Continental Congress: Benjamin Andrew, Abraham Baldwin, Nathan Brownson, Archibald Bullock, Joseph Clay, William Few, William Gibbons, James Gunn, Button Gwinnett, John Habersham, Joseph Habersham, Lyman Hall, John Houstoun, William Houstoun, Richard Howley, Noble Wymberley Jones, Edward Langworthy, Lachlan McIntosh, William Pierce, Samuel Stirk, Edward Telfair, George Walton, John Walton, Joseph Wood, and John Joachim Zubly. Many of them were gentlemen of high culture, superior education, and attractive social and political virtues. Fourteen of them, in one capacity or another, bore arms in the struggle for independence; ten were members of the legal profession; six were merchants; three were physicians; one was a clergyman; and not less than ten were interested in agricultural operations.
