This Day in Georgia History

December 24, 1814

Treaty of Ghent Signed

The U.S. and Great Britain signed the Treaty of Ghent officially ending the War of 1812. Word of the treaty, however, did not reach Georgia until February 1815. When learning of its provisions, many Georgia politicians called on the president to renounce the treaty and continue the war.
