(1750–1825) Revolutionary War soldier and superintendent of the Southern Indian Department, born in Whitby, England. A conspicuous Loyalist, Brown was an early target of the Georgia Whigs. He promoted the strategy of recruiting Indian allies to fight revolutionaries, and recruited corps of rangers in east Florida. Brown led raids along southern Georgia frontier. He constructed Fort Cornwallis on the Savannah River (surrendered June 6, 1781) and defended Savannah (surrendered July 11, 1781).
