    "On April 18, 1775, a shot known as the ""shot heard around the world"" was fired between American colonists and British troops in Lexington, Massachusetts. This began the American War for Independence. Fifteen months later, Thomas Jefferson penned the Declaration of Independence. The Treaty of Paris was signed in September 1783 which ended the war.

    Name Meaning

    English (Lancashire, Westmorland, and Yorkshire): from a shortened form of the Old French personal name G(u)erinot, a diminutive of G(u)erin, a Central or Parisian Old French form of Werin or Warin (see Warren ). The development to Garnett is from the common late Middle English lowering of e to a before r + consonant.
