Signatories 293 delegates to The Georgia Secession Convention of 1861
Purpose To announce Georgia's formal intent to secede from the Union.

Georgia's Ordinance of Secession was adopted at the Georgia Secession Convention of 1861. It was ratified by a vote on January 19, 1861; at 2:00 P.M.—the vote was 208 in favor of immediate secession with 89 opposed. Prior to signing the ordinance Eugenius A. Nisbet tabled a motion suggesting that it should be signed by all delegates regardless of their vote—as a pledge of support and sign of unified purpose. The motion passed and at 12 o'clock M. Convention President George W. Crawford announced that the hour had arrived for signing the Ordinance of Secession. Crawford placed his signature first then instructed Secretary Lamar to call delegates forward by county to sign the Ordinance. Some delegates did withhold their signature, and six insisted that a protest be incorporated into the ordinance. The list below shows the delegates name, as it was recorded on the convention's roster, the county they are from, whether or not they signed the ordinance, and how they voted when the ordinance passed.[1]
