  • Will the King give me a charter of land to help our people?
  • Sure. It will be called The Charter of 1732.
  • Can you help us build our colony?
  • ???
  • James Oglethorpe was a wealthy member of England's Parliament. He didn't like the way poor were treated and in 1720 began talking about creating the colony to help the poor and unemployed.
  • He can't understand me. How will the colony work?
  • My name's Mary Musgrove. I can be your translator.
  • In 1730 Oglethorpe asked King George ll for a charter of land in America. the colony would be called Georgia in honor of the King. King George agreed as the colony would be a buffer colony
  • Ask him if we can buid our coloy here.
  • Mr. Oglethorpe asked if he can build his colony here.
  • Sure he can.
  • Oglethorpe took 35 families with him when the Anne set sail on November 17, 1732. he selected a high bluff an said that the new city would be called Savannah. Oglethorpe met chief Tomochichi and wanted to negotiate fairly with him for the success of the new colony.
  • Drop it right there boys.
  • Okay!
  • Unfortunately neither could understand one another. However by a rare stroke of luck Oglethorpe met Mary Musgrove who was a part-Indian woman who could understand both languages and offered to be his translator.
  • Her contributions were critical to the founding of the colony as she helped Oglethorpe and Tomochichi resolve their issues peacefully.
  • In February 1733 Oglethorpe and the colonists cleared land for the city of Savanah. They hoped that it would be a "classless society", where houses were similar, land holdings were restricted, and slavery was forbidden.
