Frederica Name Chosen

In London, the Trustees decided on the name for the new town and fort they had directed be built at the mouth of the Altamaha River, Georgia’s southern boundary under the Charter of 1732. In honor of Prince Frederick, the Prince of Wales and son of King George II, the town would be named Frederica.
