This Day in Georgia History

January 30, 1733

Colonists Left Port Royal

James Oglethorpe and the Georgia colonists sailed out of Port Royal aboard a small flotilla of six boats. They proceeded southward on the inland waterway. However, a storm soon halted their progress, and they were forced to spend the night on a coastal island.
