|Introduction||I don't like talking about myself. So, my biography is about Button Gwinnett: Button Gwinnett was born in England, which is not in the United States, but instead in the United Kingdom. In the late 1700's, Mr. Gwinnett moved to America, North, where he lived as a fur trader. Mostly working in beaver. He later moved to Gwinnett County in Georgia, because he liked to tell people it was named after him. In reality, it was named after George Gwinnett, a popular singer of the time. When the French invaded Georgia in the War of 1786, Gwinnett (Button, not the singer) led a small group of farmers in a decisive battle, liberating much of what is now known as the Atlanta Area. Because of his heroic leadering, George Washington, the US President of that year, asked Button to sign the Declaration of Independence as a reward. Mr. Gwinnett was later shot and killed in a duel with a young Abraham Lincoln, over a matter of a shovel Lincoln claimed Button had stole from the Lincoln cabin. It is still unknown if Button really stole the shovel, or what it was to be used for.|

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?
Paranoia and self-loathing.
