[2015] Liza Kolbunova: The Southern Colonies

THE SOUTHERN COLONIES

James Oglethorpe

James Oglethorpe was an English man who saw that the English jails were crowded with debtors. He sarted a colony in North America for debtors to live in and start a new life on new land. In 1732, King George gave Oglethorpe a charter to start a colony on the new land south of the Carolinas. Oglethorpe named the new colony Georgia. The first settlement in Georgia was named Savannah. Oglethorpe met with the leader of the Yamacraw indians, Tomochichi, and established peace as soon as he came.

Indigo was a popular cash crop in the southern colonies. It is used for blue dye. The first succesful growth of the crop was made by Elizabeth Lucas Pinckney on her farm. Ever since then, indigo has been very profitable for farmers.
