  • Everyone will have the same amount of land, and slavery is not allowed.
  • The founder of Georgia is a man named James Oglethorpe. In 1730, he asked the British parliament for a charter to start a colony, which they would call Georgia. The king liked this idea because it would help England and protect South Carolina from the Spanish in Florida as a buffer colony. In 1732, they were given the official paper.
  • See you next week on The History of Georgia! when we talk more about the Trustee Period!
  • The History of Georgia
  • When Oglethorpe got to Georgia, he decided to settle on a steep cliff overlooking the Savannah River. There, he met a tribe of creek Indians whose chief was called Tomochichi. He wanted to negotiate with the natives fairly, and to his luck, there was a lady named Mary Musgrove. Her mom was Creek Indian, and her dad was European, so she was able to speak both languages. 
  • Tomochichi decided to give Oglethorpe a place called the Yamacraw Bluff. The colonists cleared the land and laid out the design. A thing that makes Georgia different from the other 13 colonies is that it was planned. Oglethorpe also wanted it to be a classless society, meaning that there were rules to keep the colonists equal. 
  • Next Friday, we will discuss what happens after the colonists get settled. Will Georgia stay classless, or will things change with time? Find out next week!
