    The "radicals" who supported independence did not have the majority in Georgia until 1775, when the Second Constitutional Convention was called. Prior to that, Georgia convened its own congress to decide how to respond. Many Georgians felt the need for continued ties to Britain for protection from Indians and for trade purposes.
