Georgia Discovery Guide

Overview

Georgia is one of the southern states in the United States of America. Also, this state was one of the original 13 colonies that ended up revolting against that British rule, which turned into the American Revolution and created the United States. Georgia was the last of the 13 to be established as a colony. When it came time to enter into the United States, Georgia was the fourth state to ratify the Constitution, which happened on the second of January in 1788.

Georgia seceded from the Union on January 21st, 1861, and it became one of the original seven Confederate states. After the civil war, Georgia was the last state to be readmitted to the union, which happened on July 15th, 1870.
