This Day in Georgia History

March 12, 1734

Salzburgers Arrived at Savannah

After their ship had grounded on a sand bar in the mouth of the Savannah River the previous day, the first group of German Salzburgers finally reached Savannah. The entire town turned out to watch their arrival, and several cannon were fired to salute Georgia’s newest colonists.
