Type of People that live here
Georgia is considered to be the "melting pot" of the thirteen colonies. There are Lutherans, Quakers, and even Puritans here. People of all kinds come to live in Georgia. We were formed to be a place where all people could come and be accepted.
The Georgia Colony was founded in 1732 by James E. Oglethorpe. It is a southern colony, known for growing crops and raising animals. The colony was named after King George II. The colony was created to protect South Carolina from invasion of the Spaniards from Florida and by the French from Louisiana. In 1766, Georgia became part of the U.S. in rebellion of Great Britain.
Georgia was the last of the thirteen colonies to be founded. It was founded in the year 1732. It was originally founded to be a place where everyone in the overflowing debtors prisons in England would go to have a fresh start. It would also help protect the Northern Colonies from the Spanish French in the South.
Why You Should Come Live Here
We have fish, forests, fertile soil, and light winters. We have a warm climate so many products can be produced here like cotton, tobacco, rice, indigo, lumber, furs, and farm products. We have a self-sustaining economy as our plantations trade crops for tools, fabrics, and other household items.

Types of Religion
Some types of religion in the Georgia colony were Baptism and Evangelicalism. Georgia was relatively liberal about religion and you didn't have to conform to a specific religion. The only religion you could not be was Catholic. John Wesley and George Whitefield were two major religious leaders in colonial Georgia.
James E. Oglethorpe was the founder of colonial Georgia. He was born in 1696 and died in 1785 at the age of 89. He became a member of parliament in 1722 and continued to be a member for the next 32 years until 1754. He defended the rights of colonists and was strongly against any kind of slavery. He arrived in the Americas in 1733 and later formed a colony we now know as Georgia.
Types of Economy
The economy here in Georgia is based mostly off of plantains and farms that ship to Europe. We farm tobacco, cotton, corn, and other substances and plants that can only be grown in the Americas. There are many large plantations here because of the demand for these products.
