The geographic center of Georgia lies 18 miles SE of Macon in Twiggs County.  At 4,784 feet, Brasstown Bald, near Blairsville in the Chattahoochee National Forest, is the state's highest point.  Georgia was named for King George the II of England, by colonial administrator James Oglethorpe, in 1732.  


Brief History:  Creek and Cherokee peoples were the early inhabitants of the region.  The earliest known European settlement was the Spanish mission of Santa Catalina, 1566, on Saint Catherine's Island.  General James Oglethorpe established a colony at Savannah in 1733.  Oglethorpe defeated a Spanish army from Florida at Bloody Marsh in 1742.  During the American Revolution, Georgians seized the Savannah armory, and sent the munitions to the Continental Army.  They fought with Cornwallis's British troops, twice liberating Augusta, and finally force the British from Savannah in 1782.  Georgia seceded from the Union in 1861 and was invaded by Union forces in 1864 under General William Tecumseh Sherman, who after taking Atlanta burned most of the city.  Sherman then proceeded on his infamous "March to the Sea," ending in December in Savannah Georgia, at which time he presented the city to President Lincoln as a Christmas present.  Georgia was readmitted to the Union in 1870.
