This Day in Georgia History

November 03, 1757

Treaty of Savannah Signed

Creek chiefs and Georgia officials signed the Treaty of Savannah, which confirmed all previous treaties and ceded to Georgia three islands - St. Catherines, Ossabaw, and Sapelo as well as their reserve above Savannah. However, the Creeks had previously ceded St. Catherines Island to Mary Musgrove Bosomworth, and it would be three years before a court in London would resolve the rival claims giving her clear title to St. Catherines plus £2000 as a settlement for the other two islands going to Georgia.
