Description

Map of Georgia and Alabama ehibiting the post offices, post roads, canals and railroads.

In 1733, General James Oglethorpe landed with 120 passengers on a high bluff above the Savannah River. Upon the arrival of Oglethorpe's ship the "Anne", the Yamacraw tribal chief, Tomochichi, greeted the party. Indian traders John and Mary Musgrove were also there to translate. The meeting was friendly and cooperative, with the Yamacraw tribe receiving the newcomers peacefully. The group settled in that location laying out a grid of blocks, making Savannah America's first planned city.

Georgia was made a state in 1788.

Columbus, Georgia was founded in 1828. It was well situated for navigation along the Chattahoochee River and was along the last stretch of the Federal Road before it entered into Alabama. Once the railroads arrived in the 1850's, textile mills began to be established along the river and the city became an important industrial city as well as an agricultural center.

Indians were forced out of Georgia beginning in 1833. This map portrays Georgia during the time federal troops were gathering up the remaining Cherokee Indians for removal to Oklahoma's Indian Territory.

Alabama became a state in 1819. Alabama’s early economy revolved around shipbuilding in the navigable port regions and agriculture in its inner regions. Cotton was grown abundantly throughout Alabama’s fertile lands.

Alabama's oldest city is Mobile, which was founded in 1702 by French colonists.

This detailed map of Georgia and Alabama was published in 1839 by David H. Burr. It shows relief, drainage, cities, towns, counties, canals, roads, and railroads.
