  • Description

Lachlan McIntosh Papers documents Georgia's history during the early Revolutionary War period through the experiences of General Lachlan McIntosh, a prominent Scottish American political and military leader. These papers provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse into political decisions and military movements throughout the first two years of the war. This collection illuminates McIntosh's instrumental role in the events of the early Revolutionary War period through his correspondence, from reports to new commander in chief George Washington to various letters with other military and political leaders of the time.
