Georgia Via Virginia
It would be appropriate to take a minute to mention that an honest treatment of Georgia history gives a nod to Virginia as many people left that state to relocate in the expanding lands an economy that we call home.
That being said, an understanding of early Virginia history can help us understand Georgia a little better.
Looking at the early Virginians, we see people who clung to faith and guns. They were people who lived off the land. They were people who stabilized a colony by restructuring it to have families as the basic building blocks. These were people who lived where they worked. They were people who lived in small communities. These were people much like we talk about often, especially recently.
Theres also big differences between Virginia and Georgia. But I'll leave that for another time...
