Button Gwinnett (1735 – May 19, 1777) was an English-born American political leader and the second governor of Georgia.


Button Gwinnett was born in 1735 in Gloucestershire, England to Welsh parents. In 1762 he moved to America. As a representative of Georgia to the Continental Congress, Gwinnett was the second of the signatories on the United States Declaration of Independence. In 1777, he was killed in a duel by a rival, Lachlan McIntosh, following a dispute.

The in-game protectron Button Gwinnett guards the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives.


A Button Gwinnett Protectron appears in the National Archives in Fallout 3.

Button Gwinnett is only mentioned in Fallout 4, as the namesake for a popular brewery in Boston (bottles of Gwinnett ale, pilsners and stouts are commonly found all over the Commonwealth). This is likely a homage to Samuel Adams and the Boston-based brewery whose beers bear his name.
