Fun Facts About Georgia:

  2. There was a Gold Rush in Georgia that lasted from 1829- 1861. It produced more than 870,000 ounces of gold, which sadly came mostly from Cherokee land. The Cherokee were soon evicted and sent along the famous trail of tears.

  3. Georgia has weird laws like, it is illegal to keep a donkey in a bathtub.

  4. Georgia’s population sits at around 10 million people, and it is the 8th most populous state in the United States.

  5. Georgia’s official state bird is the brown thrasher; the state flower is the Cherokee rose.

  6. Coca-Cola was invented in GA in 1886.

  7. The first ever steamship to cross the Atlantic, the City of Savanna, sailed from Georgia.

  8. Thomasville is called the City of Roses.

  9. Blackbeard Island was the home of the pirate Edward ‘Blackbeard’ Teach.

  10. In 1776, the total population of Georgia was only about 40,000 people.
