Fort Mcintosh, Georgia

Fort Mcintosh, Georgia

FORT MCINTOSH, GEORGIA. 2-4 February 1777. As the rebels got the upper hand in Georgia at the end of 1776, Loyalist refugees gathered in East Florida, where Governor Patrick Tonyn was actively organizing militia and fitting out privateers. Here Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Brown assembled his Florida Rangers and led them on raids from a base on the St. Marys River (the boundary between Florida and Georgia). The Loyalists attacked Fort McIntosh, a small, bastioned stockade about one hundred feet square on the left bank of the Satilla River in southeastern Georgia. The fifty-man garrison of Captain Richard Winn surrendered after two days, and all of them were paroled except for two officers who were taken to St. Augustine as hostages.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
