The first group of Native Americans to encounter the Europeans were the Mississippian people. The Mississippians were a more advanced native culture. They had lots of new advancements in technology, religion, and agriculture. After the Europeans got to America, the Mississippians ended up dying because diseases like small poxs. They also started dying because the Europeans had more advanced weapons.
The first European to encounter Georgia was Hernado de Soto. One reason de Soto came to America was because he thought that there were massive amounts of gold here. He also wanted to bring fame and popularity to his country of Spain. Other explorers came to the U.S. to convert natives to Christianity. The interactions between Native Americans and Europeans weren't good for the most part because when they came in contact Natives would be getting killed.
England began settling on the Atlantic coastline in the early 1500's. England had a very successful colony because they exported more than they imported. Therefore, they made more money than they spent. Unfortunately, Spain,France, and England couldn't get along so Georgia served as a "buffer colony". It was used as a way to keep the Brits away from Spain and Frances foolishness.
