This Day in Georgia History

January 31, 1733

Colonists’ Last Night Before Georgia

The flotilla of six boats carrying Georgia’s first colonists landed on the south end of Trench’s Island. Here they found a small detachment of eight South Carolina rangers- who had built huts for the Georgia colonists. Here, after a hot meal of venison, the colonists spent their last night before reaching Georgia.
