After James Edward Oglethorpe received a charter from King George II in 1732, he and other colonists established a settlement named Savannah in 1733. Other groups, such as the Salzburgers, established settlements nearby as well. In a concise, readable volume, Georgia covers these and other facts about precolonial and colonial life, such as early exploration of Georgia, the settlements of the French and Spanish in the Southeast, and how Georgia was designated a royal colony in 1741. It also discusses battles and events of the Revolutionary War, such as the British capture of Savannah and the occupation of Georgia.
