Revolutionary War: No Tea or Mourning Cloth

Georgians had to forgo their tea along with mourning cloth and other goods made in England.
The Georgia congress proceeded to re-elect three delegates who had been chosen at the First Provincial Congress as representatives to the Continental Congress, but who had declined to go to Philadelphia on the ground that the First (Georgia) Provincial Congress was not truly
represenatiave. These delegates were: Archibald Bulloch, Noble Jones and John Houstoun. Also added were two more, Lyman Hall and Dr. Joachim Zubly, a minister. Bulloch was elected as president of the Provincial Congress. The traced genealogies of Bulloch, Jones and Zubly are found on Georgia Pioneers
