Interesting Facts About Lawrenceville Georgia
Lawrenceville is the County Seat of Gwinnett County and was incorporated on December 15, 1821 which makes it the second oldest city in the Atlanta area. Lawrenceville is located approximately 30 miles Northeast of Atlanta and is convenient to shopping, dining and entertainment.
The City of Lawrenceville is named after Captain James Lawrence, commander of the frigate Chesapeake during the war of 1812. During the battle near the coast of Boston, Lawrence commanded his crew "Tell the men to fire faster and not give up the ship". These words so inspired Gwinnett resident William Baltbie that he suggested naming the town in Captain Lawrence's honor. A paraphrase of Captain Lawrence's words "Don't give up the ship" later became the motto of the US Navy which has also named numerous ships in his honor.
