GEORGIA is the 13th to become one of the 13 original colonies that revolted against British rule in the American Revolution.  It was established in 1733.  Georgia was the fourth state to ratify the United States Constitution, on January 2, 1788.  It declared its secession from the Union on Jan. 21, 1861 and was one of the original seven Confederate states.  It was the last state to be restored to the Union, on July 15, 1870.
     Georgia is known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South.  Atlanta is the capital and the most populous city.
     Georgia is bordered on the south by Florida, on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and South Carolina; on the west by Alabama and by Florida in the extreme southwest; and on the north by Tennessee and North Carolina.  The northern part of the state is in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a mountain range in the vast Appalachian Mountains system.  The central piedmont extends from the foothills to the fall line. where the rivers cascade down in elevation to the continental coastal plain of the southern part of the state.  The highest point in Georgia is Brasstown Bald, 4,784 feet (1,458 m); the lowest point is sea level.

STATE CAPITOL:

Georgia has had five official state capitals: colonial Savannah, which later alternated with Augusta; then for a decade at Louisville (pronounced Lewis-ville); and from 1806 through 1868, including during the American Civil War, at Milledgeville. In 1868, the capital was moved to the new city of Atlanta one with a better access by railroad and it became the fifth capital city of the state. It remains so to the present. The state legislature also met at some other temporary sites, including Macon, especially during the turmoil of the War.
