Description

Originally Published in 1933 The year, 1933, marks the two-hundredth anniversary of the founding of the Colony of Georgia in America. Far to the south of other colonies along the Atlantic coast, surrounded by unbroken forests, beset with the perils of Indian neighbors on all sides, threatened by the Spaniards in Florida, unarmed and undefended, it was a miracle that the brave little colony at the mouth of the Savannah lived at all. It was a tribute to the sturdy manhood of the colonists, who braved every danger, withstood every hardship, and bore every privation that met them on this frontier of American colonization. The one brave spirit that led the colonists across the ocean without hope of reward, that kept up their courage and allayed their fears, that set the laws and appointed the tasks, that met the Indians with justice and peace, that repelled the Spaniards with bravery and skill, was Oglethorpe, whose unselfish sacrifice will forever dignify him as one of the great founders of an American colony. Through two hundred years the state has steadily grown in population, in industry, and in importance. Undismayed by distance and disaster, recovering rapidly from the Revolution, undiscouraged by political and .economic turmoil, forgetful and forgiving of the ravag s of all wars, the state looks bravely into the face of the future, confident of the respect of all people everywhere. - And now behold her after these two hundred vears ! This book is not a history of the state. It touches the high points of her past and present, with the affectionate devotion of one of her sons, born upon her soil, nurtured in her bosom, and matured in love and labor with her traditions.show more
