On February 12, 1733, 113 settlers landed in the HMS Anne at what was to become the city of Savannah.

James Edward Oglethorpe, one of the trustees of the colony, traveled with the first group of colonists, laid out the design of the town of Savannah, and acted as governor of the colony.

Georgia was one of the Thirteen Colonies that revolted against British rule in the American Revolution. It was the last of the Thirteen Colonies to be established as a colony. It became the fourth state after ratifying the United States Constitution on January 2, 1788. It is known as the "Peach State" or the "Empire State of the South"
