Transcript of Georgia

It is warm all the time summer, spring, fall you name it. The winters are mild.

The warm climate makes it possible to grow crops almost all year round, and is ideally suited for plantation. Reason one The economy grows its own food so Georgia is self reliant and never gets let down by not getting a good trade. The things they grow are tobacco, cotton, corn, vegetables, grain, fruit, peanuts and livestock. Crops also were traded for items that could not be produced on plantations like shoes, lace, farm tools, and dishes. Reason 2
Economy Almost all religions were welcome including Baptist, Anglicans, and Christians . Catholics were not welcome in the Georgia. Catholics were not welcome because it was not popular in England.
