April 17, 1737

Trustees Learned of Spanish Invasion Plans

The Georgia Trustees were informed by an English ship captain who had escaped after being captured by Spanish forces and taken to Havana, Cuba that Spain had 4,000 soldiers and two war ships at Havana. Moreover, three more war ships were expected, and construction was underway on 30 flat-bottom boats for the invasion of Georgia or Carolina.
