Georgia was the last of the original thirteen colonies to be founded, gaining a corporate charter in 1732 under the leadership of General James Oglethorpe, who sought to create save haven for debtors in the New World. In addition to serving as a home for the debtors of England, the colony was also conceived as a ‘buffer state’ to insulate the rest of the English colonies against potential Spanish attack from Florida. After many difficulties, the colony was eventually granted a royal charter in 1755. Prior to the Revolutionary War, the populace of Georgia was split between Tories and Loyalists. But, in 1775 when violence broke out, radical Patriots took control of the provincial government and declared independence from England. The political situation was extremely disjointed in Georgia during the Revolutionary War. At one point, in 1778, the colony was host to two Whig governments in Augusta and one royal regime in Savannah. Georgia was the site of an English invasion in 1778 when the Northern front became a stalemate, but the Southern campaign was abandoned after the Battle of King’s Mountain in South Carolina. Much of the fighting in Georgia took place between Patriot forces and native Loyalist forces allied with English troops and Native Americans. Cherokee raids plagued the Georgia backcountry, led by the young leader Dragging Canoe. Skirmishes were common along the Georgian backcountry throughout the remainder of the war. Despite its strong Loyalist presence, Georgians readily ratified the Articles of Confederation and eventually the US Constitution in January of 1788, forming a unified state government.
