This Day in Georgia History

October 18, 1733

Trustees Ratified Treaty

On May 21, 1733, James Oglethorpe and the chiefs of the Lower Creeks signed a treaty officially allowing the English colonists permission to settle at Yamacraw Bluff. The treaty then was sent to London for formal ratification by the Trustees of Georgia, who on this day officially gave their approval.
