Johnson's new book examines life of Lachlan McIntosh

USC Salkehatchie librarian Daniel McDonald Johnson has published “This Cursed War: Lachlan McIntosh in the American Revolution.” 

Lachlan McIntosh lived in Charleston as a young man and was a longtime business associate of Henry Laurens. He was among the American defenders during the Siege of Charleston and kept a journal that remains an important primary document for historians.

Previously, Johnson worked for newspapers in South Carolina and Georgia as a reporter, photographer and editor.
