Not take Arms Against your Majesty and by emitting 
immense Sums of Paper Money, which Must have in- 
evitably ruined this Country had not the Reduction of

*It will be observed that Sir Patrick Houstoun, a memter of the King's Coun- 
cil in Georgia, was proscribed by both side3. It is not difficult to realize the 
embarrassing and delicate situation in which the sturdy old loyalist found him- 
self. He was one of the Kind's counsellors in Georgia, while his son, John, was 
one, and a prominent one, of the leaders of the rebellion. Sir Patrick was no 
doubt truly loyal to his King, but at the same time, as the father of a brilliant 
son who was wiuuing laurels on the other side, he could but feel a pride in him, 
and, to a certain extent, sympathize with his cause. Duty made him loyal to the 
King : natural affection drew him to his son and his son's cause. Recognizing 
these facts, each si< J e suspected him, and both sides proscribed him.

398 REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS. 

On the 29th of December, 1778, seven clays before the 
expiration of the term for which Governor Hotistoun had 
been elected, the British captured Savannah and the state 
government was dispersed, and for many months a con- 
dition of anarchy prevailed in Georgia, no department 
of the government being in the discharge of its constitu- 
tional functions. None of our historians have ever made 
it clear how this condition was brought about. McCall, 
our first historian, falls into palpable error. He says, 
"after the metropolis of the state had fallen into the 
hands of the enemy, the legislature had dispersed without 
appointing a Governor for the succeeding year." thus 
conveying the idea that the legislature was in session 
when the attack was made, whereas it was not in session, 
and had n A been for a month at least. The constitution 
provided that "it shall be an unalterable rule that the 
House of Assembly shall expire and be at an end yearly, 
and every year, on the da}' preceding the day of election 
mentioned" (in the constitution). The day mentioned. 
in the constitution on which members of the legislature 
must be elected "yearly and every year" was the first 
Tuesday in December. The term of the legislature of 
1778. Governor Houstoun's legislature, therefore expired 
and was at an end "on the day before" the first Tuesday 
in December. 1778. It therefore could not have been in 
session when Savannah was attacked, for its term of serv- 
ice had expired. Its successor, the legislature for 1779. 
had been elected, but the constitution provided that "the 
representatives shall meet on the first Tuesday in January 
following" their election. Hence this legislature, the leg- 
islature chosen in December, 1778, could not meet in 
regular session and organize until the first Tuesday in 
January, 1779. It is true that the constitution provided 
that "the Governor, with the advice of the Executive 
Council shall have power to call the House of Assembly 
together in any emergency," and if an emergency had 



WITHOUT ORGANIZED GOVERNMENT. 399 

arisen he would have called the members elected for 
1779. not the old legislature of 1778. for its term had 
expired. But there is no evidence that either was called, 
and it is therefore almost a certainty that no legislature 
was in session at the time Savannah was attacked and 
captured. 

Bishop Stevens, in his excellent history of Georgia, did 
not attempt to account for the anomalous condition, but 
says there existed "a confusion in civil affairs which the 
historian with his present imperfect materials cannot 
fully unravel"; while Colonel Jones does not attempt to 
elucidate the subject, but passes it over without com- 
ment. 

The real causes of this period of anarchy were these: 
under the Constitution of 1777, the Governor was elected 
by the legislature for a period of one year, and in his 
oath of office he was required to swear that 'T 
will peaceably and quietly resign the government 
to which I have been elected at the period to 
which my continuance in said office is limited 
by the constitution." The President of the Execu- 
utive Council, upon whom alone the executive duties de- 
volved in case of a vacancy in the office of Governor, was 
also elected at the same time for one year and took the 
same oath as the Governor; consequently each of these 
officers went out of office at the expiration of one year 
from the date of his election, there being no provision in 
the constitution for their holding over till their successors 
were elected, this provision never having been incorpo- 
rated in the organic law until 1798. Thus the office of 
Governor became vacant, and there was no legislature in 
session to fill the vacancy. An election for members of 
a legislature to convene in Savannah on the first Tuesday 
in January, 1779. had been held on the first Tuesday in 



400 REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS, 

December, 177S; but seven days before it would have 
met and elected Governor Houstoun's successor the city 
was captured by the enemy, and it was therefore impossi- 
ble for it to meet there- When Savannah was menaced 
by the British in December, 1778, the House ci Assem- 
bly, in which alone the power to remove the seat of gov- 
ernment was lodged, not being in session, Governor Hous- 
toun's Executive Council, a few days before the expira- 
tion of their term, assumed the responsibility of ordering 
the temporary removal to Augusta, but the British com-. 
mander pushed a column of soldiers to that place and oc-. 
cupied it before the government could be established there, 

Repeated efforts were made to convene the legislature, 
elected the preceding December, to elect a Governor and 
reorganize the state government, but it was impossible to 
secure the attendance of a quorum, the members elected 
being scattered, some refugees in other states, some within, 
the enemy's lines and some, but not enough to make a 
quorum, in that part of the state still held by the patriots. 

Thus, when Savannah fell, Georgia was left without a 
Governor,, without a legislature, without an Executive 
Council, and without even a temporary seat of govern- 
ment. The last meeting of Governor Houstoun and his 
Council, as appears from their book of minutes still pre- 
served and printed in Volume II of our compilation of 
Revolutionary Records, was held in Savannah on the 26th 
of December, 1778. Immediately following this minute, 
on the same page, is the following entry in the hand- 
writing of their Secretary: — 

"The town of Savannah being taken by the British on 
the 28th of December put a final end to public business of 
a civil nature." This was the end of Governor Hous- 
toun's administration and of organized government in 
Georgia for a long period of time, but not of the efforts 



WITHOUT ORGANIZED GOVERNMENT. 401 

of the patriotic men who had been elected to the legisla- 
ture for the year 1779, but who had not organized before 
the fall of Savannah, and could not have organized, under 
the terms of the constitution, had the town not been taken, 
before the first Tuesday in January-, 1779, the day fixed 
in the constitution for the regular annual meetings of 
the legislature and the election of a governor. Immedi- 
ately after the fall of Savannah, Augusta having been 
designated by the Executive Council as the temporary seat 
of government, some of the members elect attempted 
to convene the legislature there for the purpose of elect- 
ing a Governor and reorganizing their state government, 
and to this end repaired at once to that place, arriving 
there in advance of the British troops sent by Colonel 
Campbell. British commander at Savannah, to occupy 
the town. 

Immediately following the last entry in the book of the 
Minutes of Governor Houstoun's Council, quoted above, 
is this entry : — 

''The members chosen on the 7th of this instant by 
the Honorable House of Assembly for a Council of this 
State, met at the house of Matthew Hobson, in Augusta, 
and proceeded to the choice of a President and adjourned 
till the meeting of the next convention." 

It will be observed that the name of the President 
elected is not given, and we are left to conjecture as to 
who was chosen. The next entry in the book is as fol- 
lows : — 

"Georgia. January 9th, 1779. 

Agreeable to resolve of the Convention of the Repre- 
sentatives of the State of Georgia in Assembly met, which 
resolve is as follows, viz — 

2C r r— to! 1 



402 REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS. 

Ri-;soi,ved, that the members chosen for a Council, cr 
a majority thereof, act as a committee, empowered by this 
convention to recommend every thing they may deem 
expedient in the place of a Council for this State, until 
the convention meet again to clothe them with power to 
act as an Executive Council." 

These entries clearly show that everything that was 
done by the patriots, struggling to maintain the semblance 
of a slate government, was irregular. "The Honorable 
House of Assembly" which on the 7th of January nomi- 
nated an Executive Council, was not a legal legislature 
but a mere irregular assemblage of a minority of the 
members elected in the preceding December. Had the as- 
semblage constituted a majority of the members elect, 
they would have at once organized in due form by elect- 
ing a Speaker and have chosen a Governor to succeed 
Governor Houstoun. But they did not do this. They 
were not in fact a legislature, but only a minority of the 
members elected to the legislature. Realizing this they 
did not assume to be a legislature, but called themselves 
a "convention" and as such, having before them a list of 
the names of all the persons who had been elected to this 
legislature, those absent as well as those present, they 
nominated from the list before them the requisite number 
to constitute an Executive Council, but while the number 
thus nominated to be an Executive Council was sufficient, 
and while all of them were probably present, they were 
not called an Executive Council, but a "Committee." be- 
cause the body which nominated them, being a mere mi- 
nority of the House of Assembly, was not competent to 
select an Executive Council. Hence the body naming 
them was not called a "House of Assembly" but a "Con- 
vention," and the body named was called a "Committee,*' 
not an Executive Council. 

Finally, on the 27th of July, 1779, about twenty-five 



WITHOUT ORGANIZED GOVERNMENT. 403 

members of the legislature, elected in the preceding De- 
cember, met in Augusta, the British having previously 
evacuated that place, and in conjunction with a number 
of leading patriots, not members, formed a convention 
which, to avoid further continuance of the anarchy which 
prevailed, adopted, signed and promulgated the following 
document appointing a body of nine persons of the high- 
est character for patriotism and integrity, all members- 
elect to the legislature, to act as a "Supreme Executive 
Council/' clothing them with all the powers conferred 
by the constitution on the Executive Department, and ad- 
monishing them to adhere strictly to the spirit of the 
constitution.

SUPREME EXECUTIVE COUNCIL. 407 

"In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands 
this twenty-fourth day of July in the year of our Lord 

1 779-" 

The .Supreme Executive Council elected John Wereat 
President of the body, and he at once assumed the duties 
of Governor and discharged these duties as best he could 
under the unfavorable circumstances which surrounded 
him. Among other things he issued the following procla- 
mation : 

"Augusta, in the State of Georgia, 

November 4, 1779. 

"Whereas, from the invasion of the State by the enemy, 
in December last, the absence of manv of the members 
elected to represent the different counties in the House of 
Representatives for the present year, with unavoidable 
causes, several ineffectual attempts have been made to 
convene a Legal House of Representatives: and whereas, 
it is essential to the welfare and happiness of the State 
that a Legal and Constitutional House of Assembly should 
be convened: We, therefore, earnestly recommend to 
such of the citizens of this State as have preserved their 
fidelity to the cause of America, and were inhabitants of 
the counties of Chatham, Liberty, Glynn, Camden, and 
Effingham prior to the reduction of these counties by the 
British forces, to repair to such place within this State 
as to them shall appear most safe and convenient, on the 
first Tuesday in December next, that being the day ap- 
pointed by the Constitution for a general election through- 
out the State, in order to elect persons to represent these 
counties in the General Assembly for the ensuing year, 
that a full, free, and equal representation may be had to 
proceed on business of the utmost importance to the com- 
munity ; and it is the opinion of this Board, that this town 
would be the most eligible, in the present situation of 



408 REVOLUTIONARY RECORDS. 

affairs, for the meeting of the Assembly, which will be 
the first Tuesday in January next, agreeable to the Con- 
stitution of the State. 

John Were at, President." 

"By order of the Board." 

In the meantime George Walton, George Wells, Rich- 
ard Howley, and their partisan friends, violently assailed 
the Supreme Executive Council, charging that they were 
usurpers and that at least some of them were disloyal and 
in sympathy with the Tories, and, finally, by a bold stroke 
of usurpation, held impromptu elections in Augusta in 
which refugees from the lower counties, and many other?, 
voted and elected members to an unconstitutional body 
which they called a legislature, all the partisan friends of 
Walton, Howley and Wells. These men, together with 
a few members elected at the December election who had 
not participated in the convention that appointed the Su- 
.preme Executive Council, at once assembled at Augusta, 
organized by electing William Glasscock, Speaker, and 
on the 4th of November elected Walton Governor and 
appointed from their own body an Executive Council. 
Thus there were, for the remainder of the year 1779. two 
Executive Councils and two persons, Walton and Wereat, 
exercising the executive powers at the same time. Wereat 
and those who elected him their President seem to have 
been actuated by motives of pure patriotism and an 
earnest desire to save the distracted and devastated state 
from the further evils of anarchy; Walton, Wells and 
Howley, by jealousy, inordinate ambition and a desire 
for power and place. Walton's legislature continued in 
session for the remainder of the year and its actions, 
especially those in reference to General Mcintosh, re- 
flected no credit on it. 

When the first Tuesday in December, 1779. came the 



CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. 409 

people elected members for anew legislature in accordance 
with the proclamation of President Wereat, and the pro- 
visions of the constitution. This legislature met in Au- 
gusta on the 4th day of January, 1780, and elected Rich- 
ard Howley Governor, and selected from their own body 
a new Executive Council, according to law, and consti- 
tutional government was again," for a brief period, re- 
stored after a year of discord, faction and anarchy. 

But it was only for a brief period. In May, 1780, 
Charleston was captured and occupied by the British, and 
a month later Augusta was occupied by Brown and Grier- 
son, the two notorious Tory leaders, and British soldiers 
were scattered all over both states. Prior to this, the 
General Assembly, aware of the defenseless condition of 
Augusta, and "deeming it unsafe and impolitic for the 
Governor and Council to remain thus exposed, desig- 
nated Heard's Fort, in Wilkes County, as a suitable place 
of meeting for transacting the business of the govern- 
ment of this State." 

The Executive Council, acting on this suggestion, ad- 
journed on the 5th of February- to meet at Heard's Fort. 
Governor Howley went to Philadelphia to take his seat 
in the Continental Congress to which he had been elected, 
and the executive powers and duties were entrusted to 
George Wells, the President, and three other members of 
the Executive Council. In a few days after he assumed 
the duties of Chief Executive, President Wells was killed 
in a duel by James Jackson, and Stephen Heard was 
chosen President of the Council. When Mr. Heard ''re- 
tired to North Carolina'' Myrick Davies was elected 
President. Thus, during nearly all the year 1780. the 
executive powers were exercised by three members of 
the Council, Wells, Heard and Davies, in a Fort near 
where the town of Washington now stands. The entire

state had been overrun and was held by the British ex- 
cept two counties, Richmond and Wilkes, and the cause 
of the patriots seemed lost beyond recovery. A pall of 
gloom hung over the devastated land until June, 1781, 
when the British commander at Augusta, together with 
the entire force under his command, was captured by Gen- 
eral Pickens and Colonel Lee, and that important post 
restored to the patriots. This was the beginning of the 
end of British rule in Georgia. Most of the state was 
recovered, and in August a Legislature was assembled at 
Augusta. Whether this legislature was elected on the 
first Tuesday in December, 17S0, at the regular time pro- 
vided in the constitution, or at a special election after the 
enemy had been driven from the upper and middle parts 
of the state, there are no records to show, but it is 
probable that the members were chosen at special elections 
after the capture of Augusta, for the entire state, except 
two counties, being in the hands of the enemy in Decem- 
ber 1780, it is not probable that elections could have been 
held at that time in any counties other than Richmond 
and Wilkes, if indeed in them. 

As to who ordered these special elections we are left 
to conjecture, for under the constitution and the law r no 
one had authority- to do it, the terms of office of both 
Governor Howley and his executive Council having ex- 
pired in January, 1781. It is probable, however, that, 
inasmuch as the semblance of civil government remaining 
in the state had been exercised during the year, 17S0, by 
three or four members of Howley's Council at Heard's 
Fort, they ordered it. Xo matter when, or by whom it 
was ordered, it was held, and a legislature elected which 
assembled at Augusta in August, 17S1. It organized by 
electing John Jones, Speaker, and on the 16th it elected 
Doctor Nathan Brownson Governor for the remainder 
of the vear. Edward Telfair, William PeAV, Noble Wym-

berly Jones and Samuel Stirk were chosen delegates to 
the Continental Congress. This legislature enacted sev- 
eral important laws, among them the following: — 

"An act declaring certain persons who are therein de- 
scribed citizens of this State, and for burying in oblivion 
certain high crimes and misdemeanors." 

"An Act to continue the several acts heretofore made 
in the then province of Georgia, and also all acts made 
and passed by the several conventions, congresses and 
Houses of Assembly of the State of Georgia " 

"An Act for the prevention of internal conspiracies and 
for empowering certain committees therein named to ex- 
amine into the conduct of certain suspicious persons." 

On the first Tuesday in December, 1781, the day fixed 
in the constitution, members of the legislature for 1782, 
were elected in the several counties This legislature met 
in Augusta on the first day of January, and on the second, 
John Martin was elected Governor. 

In this running review of occurrences during the 
progress of the struggie for independence we have now 
arrived at the period from which we have been able to 
find Minutes of the Executive Department and Journals 
of the Legislature which are printed in the next and suc- 
ceeding volumes of our compilation. To these we refer 
the reader for information concerning the civil govern- 
ment of the state during he remainder of the Revolution- 
ary period, and bring this introductory narrative to a 
close.

APPENDIX. 



When, during- the progress of the War for Indepen- 
dence, it was deemed by the legislature necessary to pass 
the acts of amercement, confiscation and banishment, 
the names of some not really at heart opposed to the 
popular cause were included in the acts. They had been 
guilty of no overt acts of disloyalty to the State, but 
were under suspicion only. Others whose acts of disloy- 
alty were not flagrant, or only technical, were also in- 
cluded, as were still others who were really attached to 
the royal government, but whose associations and en- 
vironments were such as to excuse them for their atti- 
tude. Many of the persons thus included in the dis- 
qualifying acts were, moreover, the fathers or brothers 
of patriots who were actively and loyally supporting, on 
the field of battle and in the councils of the state, the 
cause of the people. The ties of blood are strong, and 
hence after the conflict was over and the independence 
of the states was acknowledged by the King, those pa- 
triots who had relatives on the other side were disposed 
to seek clemency for them, and the representatives in the 
legislature of the people who had been victorious in the 
struggle were in a temper to be magnanimous. As a re- 
sult, at almost every session of the legislature for a score 
or more of years after the close of the war, special acts 
were passed for the relief of such persons named in the 
disqualifying acts as seemed to the law makers worthy 
of such clemency. To complete the record and do no in- 
justice to the men to whom such clemency was extended, 
and to their descendants, it is deemed proper to compile 
and publish in this appendix as many of these acts of 
clemency as we have been able to find. That we include 
all such acts as were passed is not probable, but none that 
we have been able to find have been omitted.
