Lyman Hall was an American physician and statesman, best known as one of the signers of the United States Declaration of Independence, representing the state of Georgia. He was a clergyman and also served as a pastor for some years after graduation, but his true strength was his leadership quality which influenced a majority of people and he became an ordained Congregational minister. Later in his career, he studied medicine and practiced it for some time before he moved to Georgia into the hotbed of revolutionary politics. He faced a lot of hardship and struggles to achieve independence for his people and finally he was given the honor of being one of the three delegates of the Congress from Georgia, who signed the Declaration of Independence. After some years of independence, he was also elected as the Governor of Georgia to rebuild the post-revolution Georgia. The State of Georgia has named a county after him, Hall County. People of the state remember him as one of the great revolutionaries who always supported liberty and humanity above all.
