Revolutionary War: Zubly chickens out

Dr. Joachim Zubly, a man of wealth and of the Established Church, it turns out, was a wavering spirit. One day in Philadephia during a session of the Continental Congress, he said that he did not want independence from England. He was denounced by Samuel Chase of Maryland who accused him of carrying on a correspondence with Governor Wright revealing the plans of the Continental Congress and warning the governor of Georgia of the impending separation from Great Britain. Zubly made a hasty departure from Philadelphia. After of the capture of Savannah, when the royal government was resumed, he returned to his church and remained in Savannah until 1781.
