Prehistoric Native Cultures
The Paleo Prehistoric Period was over 10,000 years ago. This period was known as the stone age because they used many things made out of stone, They were nomadic hunters that hunted wooly mammoths and other large animals like the saver tooth tiger. lived together in a group of 25 to 50 people.They were found in the Savannah and Ocmulgee River area. They were the earliest native cultures.
The Archaic native culture lasted from 8,000 B.C to 5,000 B.C. The climate grew warmer and aimals became extinct so their diet swithched from wooly mammoths to deer, bear, and fish.. They invented tools such as choppers and drills
Pre-Historic Native Cultures
The Woodland era introduced new tools and families joined together to form tribes. Hunting, fishing, and gathering were important during this time period. This pre-historic period lasted from 1,000 B.C to 1,000 A.D. Religon cremonies began in this time period. The woodland people also had new inventions for hunting like the bow and arrow.
Georgia's last pre-historic native culture was the mississipian Indians.. They built centers for religous ceromonies where the head of the village lived. They lasted until 1600 A.D. The civilization grew most of their food. This civilization changed how they dressed and started wearing feathers and beads for headwear and painted their bodies.Toward their ending they left their villages and never came back..
The Creek Indians were there before colonist arrived and were moved on reservations by the U.S government. The creek nation has its own government, laws and other services. The Creek men were hunters and sometimes entered war to protect their families, and women did the farming.
The Cherokee lived in the northwestern mountain region of Georgia. After the Mississipian time period there were over22,ooo Cherokee. The Cherokee were a more advanced civilization because they created a written lnguage. In the Cherokee civilization families were traced back to their mothers, and their brothers were responsible for raising the children. Each tribe had two cheifs, one for making war, and one for making peace. Within a tribe were clans, a group of people who beleived they were related by blood and there are seven known clans that are here today.
Georgia The 13th Colony
In 1730 James Ogelthorpe and 21 former prisoners propsed a plan for people who coudn't pay their debt to colonize southwest of North Carolina and King George II gave them permission. The people responsible, the Trustees and the colonist had many regulations and laws from the king. But many of the people from jail coudn't go to the New World. Once they arrived on land they had to make peace with the Natives who they had a lasting friendship with. In 1733 everything went downhill, sickness became a major problem ,but they soon recovered. A proprietary colony is a colony given a proprietor to govern, a royal colony are British overseas territories. Georgia's three royal govenors were John Reynolds, Henry Ellis, and James Wright.. John Reynolds was proved ineffective and was taken out, Henry Ellis established a solid foundation, and James Wright produced growth was was very popular.
Revolutionary War/ Early Statehood
In the 1770's Georgians opposed British trade reguations, but didn't want to join any of the revolutionary movements across the nation. British war ship arrived in the Savannah river in 1776. George Walton, Lyman all, and Button Gwinnett went to Philedelphia to sign the Declaration of Independence. Native Americans didn't want any part of the war but they eventually helped fight the Briish and made treaties with malitias because they needed help. Native Americans helped with skills and tactics. Tories and sons of liberty were groups that fought against British tax.. The Liberty Boys met in Savannah at Peter Tondee's Tavern who were important in the independence movement. The two states who did not allow slaves to fight were Georgia and South Carolina because they feared they would take advantage and run away. The Seige of Savannahwas helped by the French and the leader was Benjmin Lincoln . In 1779 Andrew Pickens led the militia to victory of the Kettle Creek Battle. The Yorktown Battle was the last major battle and was led by George Wahington and ended by the British surrendering. The first U.S constituion is called the Bill of Rights.
