Revolutionary War: "Come and take it"

The three McIntosh brothers served throughout the Revolution. The youngest, Colonel John, distinguished himself at Fort Morris, the outer defense of Sunbury and is remembered for the time when the British sent him a demand to surrender the fort. He sent back the message

"Come and take it!"

These words were engraved on a sword which the Georgia Assembly presented to Colonel John McIntosh.
