This Day in Georgia History

March 21, 1775

Lyman Hall Elected to Continental Congress

Voters of St. John’s Parish elected Lyman Hall to represent them at the Second Continental Congress – an action taken because the delegates elected by Georgia’s provincial congress felt they should not attend because of the divided loyalties of Georgia residents.

To view a portrait of Lyman Hall, see the Digital Library of Georgia.
