Land

Georgia has a lot of different land forms. It's the largest state in the south and it also touches the Atlantic Ocean. There are many rivers, mountains and flat lands. Georgia touches five states and is also part of the Appalachian mountains. The soil is very rich and fertile. Many things can grow there including corn, fruit, tobacco, cotton and even the best peanuts. Georgia is a great place to visit. Atlanta is the capital and you could go anytime because the winters are warm. You can enjoy the many lakes, sand dunes, and see the many farms.

History

About two thousand years ago there were people called mound builders. Mound builders, built big mounds of dirt and stones. After they finish building the mounds, they hollowed them out, and bury the famous dead. They would also have religious ceremonies. Georgia has been through many wars, including the Revolutionary War in the 1780's. Many battles took place in Georgia in the Civil War. I'm glad Georgia is apart of the U.S.A.

Fun Facts

Did you know that Georgia grows the most peanuts then any other state. Also 3/4 of Georgia is covered in forest. It is the biggest state in the southeast. Today about 10 million people live in Georgia.
