This storyboard does not have a description.
Due to the blossoming friendship between James Oglethorpe and Tamachichi (thanks to Mary Musgrove), Tamachichi allowed James to settle his colony in present-day Savannah in 1733.
Then, five months after the English arrived at Georgia the Jewish colonist came. Along with them, they brought Dr. Smauel Nunes who helped cure yellow fever. They also brought the Jewish religion to Georgia.
We want slaves! We want liquor!
Next came the Salzburgers. These German-speaking Protestants settled in New Ebeneezer. They established the first Lutheran church in Georgia, and the first orphanage.
Then the Highland Scots joined the colony of Georgia in the 1730s. They came seeking religious freedom and to protect Georgia from the Spanish. The Highland Scots settled in present day Darien and created the first Presbyterian church in Georgia.
Georgia was a trustee colony for roughly 30 years before Malcontents turned Georgia into a royal colony. Malcontents did not like that they were unable to have slaves or liquor. They also wanted to get rid of the unsuccessful crops like mulberry trees.
Finally, in 1752 Georgia officially becomes a royal colony. This means it was ruled by a royal governor instead of a trustee. They had very different laws compared to the trustee colony of Georgia. Once Georgia became a royal colony James Oglethorpe returned home to England where he lived the rest of his days.
