Button Gwynnett

Button Gwinnett, Failed Merchant, Plantation Owner, Mountebank, Opportunist Politician and Founding Father by Colin Sharp, published by YouCaxton, may have been published at an opportune moment, since moves to restore his tomb and the family vault in the Colonial Park Cemetery in Savannah Georgia have been taking place simultaneously. It is hoped by those who take an interest in his life, that book and tomb together will help to cement Button Gwinnett’s somewhat disreputable place in American history.
