William Few was a representative from Georgia and a signatory on the U.S. Constitution. In 1771 Few, his father and brother joined the “Regulators,” a group of frontiersmen who opposed the royal governor. His brother was hanged for this and the family farm destroyed. During the war Few was a lieutenant colonel in the dragoons, and he served in the Georgia provincial congress and the Continental Congress. Of the six Georgia delegates, only two signed the Constitution.
This William Few mug is part of our US Constitution series profiling the 39 signatories of the US Constitution. The U.S. Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787, by 39 delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, presided over by George Washington. Six of these men also signed the Declaration of Independence: George Clymer, Benjamin Franklin, Robert Morris, George Read, Roger Sherman, and James Wilson.
The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history. The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton. He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia-tone. The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
