Colonel Gideon Wright







Col. Gideon Wright, from Forsyth County

Along with his brother Hezekiah, Wright headed the loyalists at the battle of Shallow Ford in mid October 1780,
where they were defeated. Though we donít hear of him being further involved militarily, he is listed on the
loyalist payrolls for 1782.
