DescriptionGeorgia's Start as a State
In April 1776, Georgia's 3rd Provinicial Congress adopted the "Rules and Regulations" [Link]
for the government of Georgia pending advice and direction from the Continental Congress.

These "Rules and Regulations" took effect on May 1, 1776. These served as a framework until
February 1777 when Georgia's 1st State constitution was adopted.

Georgia is the only colony of the original 13 that did not officially declare independence.

Some overlap occurs between the State of Georgia and the Colony of Georgia [Link] after 1776.

In late 1778, the British invaded Georgia, restoring large areas within Georgia to colonial rule,
making this the only colony that was regained by the British once they had been expelled. The
British evacuated on July 11, 1782, thus ending colonial rule in Georgia.
