Here’s a little fun fact for you: It’s Georgia’s birthday. Most people don’t know that Georgia does, in fact, have a birthday. Now, before you go asking her how old she is (Answer: very, and she might take offense), we’ve decided to share some more tidbits of information regarding Georgia Day.

On February 12, 1733, James Oglethorpe landed the first settlers in the Ann, at what was to become Georgia’s first city (and later the first state capital), Savannah.
