American History
2.20 General James Oglethorpe


In this chapter we are going to learn how the settlement was made in Georgia. The two colonies farthest south were North Carolina and South Carolina. In 1733 James Oglethorpe, a brave English soldier, who afterward became General Oglethorpe, came over here to make a new settlement. This new one, which made just thirteen[4] in all, was called Georgia in honor of King George the Second, who gave a piece of land for it, on the seacoast, below South Carolina.

The first settlement or colony was Virginia made by English in 1607. By the beginning of 1733, or within the span of hundred and twenty five years, eleven more colonies had been made. They stretched along the seacoast from the farthest coast of Maine to the Northern boundary of Florida, which was then owned by the Spaniards.
