History Of Georgia

The state Georgia was founded in 1732. Georgia had the greatest number of plantations of any state in the South in the 19th century. And in many respects epitomized plantation culture and economic dependence on slavery. In 1864, Union General William Tecumseh Sherman invaded Georgia. He captured Atlanta and began his infamous March to the Sea, cutting a 200-mile-wide swath of fire and destruction reaching all the way to Savannah. Georgia is the number one producer in USA of peanuts, pecans and peaches and vidalia onions, known as the sweetest onions in the world. Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta in 1886.
