    1733 James Oglethorpe and a party of settlers crossed the Atlantic Ocean in the ship Anne to begin settlement of the colony of Georgia. They first arrived off the coast of Carolina, then negotiated permission to settle from Yamacraw Chief Tomochichi. Acting as interpreters were John Musgrove, who had a trading post in the area, and his wife Mary Musgrove, who was part Yamacraw. The settlers then entered the mouth of the Savannah River, finally disembarking at Yamacraw Bluff on February 12 - now known as Georgia Day. The settlement they founded was named Savannah. Note: despite Oglethorpe’s hopes to establish Georgia as a haven for debtors; reality prevented it (the settlers were chosen for their skills). None of the original settlers aboard the Anne were debtors, and few ever settled in Georgia. See This Day in Georgia History for February 1, 1733.

    Even though the area was inhabited by Native American inhabitants before the English settlers arrived
