This Day in Georgia History

January 10, 1736

Highlanders Arrived in Georgia

The H.M.S. Prince of Wales arrived at Savannah. Aboard were Hugh Mackay and a group of Highlanders he had recruited in Scotland to erect a settlement on Barnwell Bluff on the north banks of the mouth of the Altamaha River. Here, near the site where Fort King George had been built 15 years earlier, the Highlanders laid out what would become known as Darien.
