The 225th Anniversary Battlefield Celebration of
The Battle of Kettle Creek
Wilkes County, Georgia Saturday, February 14, 2004

In 2003, the Georgia Refugees, a group of Revolutionary War re-enactors, began the tradition of asking all present to take the Oath of Loyalty to the State of Georgia, as it was given to citizens of the Revolutionary War period. All willing participants then sign the oath with a quill pen.

"We and each of us do truly and sincerely acknowledge, process, testify, and declare that the STATE OF GEORGIA is and of right ought to be, free, Sovereign, and INDEPENDENT and do swear to bear true faith and allegiance to the said State and defend the same against traitors, conspiracies, and all hostile attempts whatsoever, and that we do renounce adjure, all Allegiance subjection, and obedience to the King of Great Britain. And that no foreign prince, person, prelate, state or potentate hath or ought to have any jurisdiction, superiority, preeminence, authority and power which is or may be vested by their constituents in the Congress of the United States. And I do further testify and declare that no man or body of men hath or can have any right to absolve or discharge me from the obligation of this oath, profession, testimony, declaration, denial, renunciation and abjuration, foregoing words, without any equivocation, mental evasion or secret reservation whatsoever. So Help Me God!"
