Georgia : Southern Colony

By: Maddax F.

Started for Two Main Reasons

  1. First, the British government wanted to keep the Spanish from moving north. The Spanish were already in Florida, to the south.
  2. Second, some wealthy Englishmen wanted to help poor people escape debtor's prison. At that time, debtors in England went to jail if they could not pay there bills.
