Life in Georgia
Georgia was founded in 1732 by James Oglethorpe. The new colony was to be located between South Carolina and Florida. It served as a border or shield for South Carolina and the other southern colonies. It was originally a land for prisoners who were overcrowded in British Prisons. The inhabitants were charged with creating a number of forts along the border to help protect against invasion. They were able to repel the Spanish from these positions a number of times.

The economy of Georgia mainly consisted of farming cash crops and owning slaves workers. Georgia began with the intention to have little landholding and no slavery. However, when it became a royal colony in 1752, the ban on slavery was lifted. Plantations and slavery became a major part of the Georgian economy. Cotton picking did not come until later when the cotton gin was invented in 1793. Georgia also traded and exported all of the things they grew. Most of their money came from cash crops like indigo, rice, and sugar.
The main church in colonial Georgia was the Anglican Church. It was the most influential and largest congregation of Christian but it wasn't the official religion of the state.Many different religions practiced in colonial Georgia.
