On to Independence
About North Georgia

Georgia's move to the Radical camp came when Archibald Bulloch, who had been involved in the 1772 dissolution of the House, was elected head the Council of Safety. When Georgians met in April, 1776 to establish their revolutionary state government, Bulloch was again chosen to lead it by the representatives. A majority of Georgia politicians were firmly in the independence camp.

Of five men chosen to attend The Continental Congress, only Lyman Hall, George Walton, and Button Gwinnett actually make the trip to Philadelphia. Bulloch, the fourth delegate-elect, has duties to attend to in the state as President of the Council of Safety. John Houstoun, the fifth delegate, is detained by personal business.

In June, 1776, Georgia troops participated in the successful defense of Fort Moultrie in Charles Town harbor. British ships under the command of Admiral Sir Peter Parker, including the Friendship, Active, Experiment, Solebay, and the flagship Bristol, are successfully defeated, ending British interest in the area for almost two years.
