The Mississippian, a complex modern group of native Americans, were the first to encounter Europeans. Because they were unfamiliar with the diseases the Europeans brought over. Many died from diseases, such as small pox.
Hernando de Soto was the first European explorer to explore Georgia. He came in search of gold like many explorers at the time. Some other explorers came to bring glory to their country and some came to spread Christianity and to escape religious persecution.
