GEORGIA

Objectively the best colony, in our opinion

Our History:

First European to visit us was the spaniard, Hernando De soto in 1540 looking for gold.



The Spanish landed in GA first, but later the English visited, and King George II issued a charter in 1732, so that the refugees could make a settlement there

Location

We are at the bottom of the 13 colonies, on the southeastern coast of the "New World"


The rich farmland and warm and temperate climate of georgia allowed it to be a good haven for crops like indigo, rice, and cotton


Exports of these crops allowed us to gain wealth relatively quickly

About Us

Our Religion is Protestant Christian
