More about Georgia

Georgia was founded in 1732 as the Province of Georgia. It was first settled in 1733. In 1752, it became a British royal colony. It was the southernmost and last of the original Thirteen Colonies. The Georgia Colony was named after King George II, Great Britain. It covered South Carolina from south to Spanish Florida, and west to French Louisiana at the Mississippi River. Georgia was the fourth state to ratify The United States Constitution on January 2, 1788. 

From 1802-1804, western Georgia was divided to create the Mississippi Territory. Later, it was recognized as the U.S. state of Alabama and Mississippi. Georgia was among the seven Confederate States that declared secession from the Union in January 1861. Georgia was the last state to return to the Union after the Civil War on July 15, 1870. The post-Reconstruction period of the late 19th Century saw Georgia's economy transform as prominent politicians, businessmen, and journalists led by Henry W. Grady promoted the "New South" philosophy, which emphasized sectional reconciliation, industrialization, and white supremacy. 

Many prominent Georgians were leaders in civil rights movements during the 20th century. Atlanta hosted the 1996 Summer Olympics. This event marked the 100th anniversary of the modern Olympic Games. As part of the larger Sun Belt phenomenon, Georgia has experienced significant population growth and economic growth since 1945. 14 Georgian counties were among the 100 fastest-growing in 2008 and 2007.
