Highlights include the dueling pistols used by Button Gwinnett and Lachlan McIntosh, the grapeshot that mortally wounded Count Casimir Pulaski during the Siege of Savannah, the minutes of the Revolutionary Council of Safety, Abraham Baldwin’s draft copy of the U.S. Constitution, and a sword presented to the City of Savannah by the Marquis de Lafayette.
