Baptist and Methodist

There's is really nothing much to say about this two churches but .they were the two largest churches in Georgia.

headright system

referred to a grant of land, usually 50 acres, given to settlers in the 13 colonies. The system was used mainly in Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Maryland. It proved to be quite effective by increasing the population in the British colonies.each white male counted as a "head" of the family and had the right to receive up too 1,000 acres of land.

Land lotteries

White man 21 years or older could buy a chance to win "land" (spin of a wheel). extra chances for household with well as war veterans and widows.

Yazoo land fraud

Georgians growing hunger for land reached a peek in 1795.georgians western borders were the Mississippi river and one of its tributaries (branches),the Yazoo river. Georgia was controlled by an elite group of aristocratic planters.rice and indigo thrived in the costal region around Augusta and savannah, allowing a few men to gain land, slaves, and wealth while leaving the majority of the white population poor and politically weak.

The removal of creeks and Cherokees

part of the trail of tears, refers to the forced relocation between 1836 and 1839 of the cherokee Nation from their lands in Georgia,south carolina,north carolina,tenessee,texas and Alabama to the Indian territory (present day Oklahoma) in the western united states which resulted in the death of an estimated 4000 Cherokee.
