This Day in Georgia History

June 25, 1735

Trustees Voted to Send Settlers to Frederica

In London, the Georgia Trustees voted to send a new shipload of settlers to build a new town and fort on the Altamaha River, which was the southern boundary of Georgia. The settlement would be named Frederica. See July 2, 1735, entry for why the name “Frederica” was selected.
