George WaltonGeorge Walton was part the Georgia delegation to the Continental Congress. He is a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

He also sent a forged letter to Congress that created a dispute between Button Gwinnett and Lachlan McIntosh. Button Gwinnett died as a result of the duel that he and Lachlan had.

When Lachlan's son, Captain William McIntosh, heard of this, he horse-whipped George Walton. However, that did not keep George Walton from being appointed Chief Justice of the state of Georgia that same year.
