“Not for Ourselves, but Others”
George II, the king of England from whom our state of Georgia acquires its name, orchestrated his vision of refuge for the poor, while simultaneously creating a model society of justice, morality, and Christian religiosity through James E. Oglethorpe. Philanthropist and humanitarian, James E. Oglethorpe, led 114 of England’s broke, busted and disgusted citizens to establish the last of our original thirteen colonies, the Colony of Georgia. From Georgia’s humble beginnings, James E. Oglethorpe spearheaded the only one of its kind with the settlement of Savannah. Georgia now forms the largest state east of the Mississippi River.
