In 1731, twenty thousand Protestants were expelled by the Archbishop Firmian of the Province of Salzburg (presently Austria) because they refused to embrace certain religious beliefs and they continued to follow the teachings of Martin Luther. Sixteen thousand went to East Prussia, two hundred to Holland, three hundred to the United States of America, Georgia, and three thousand five hundred settled in various locations. The Trustees of the Colony of Georgia in 1732 extended an invitation to Salzburgers to come settle in the new colony in America. Reverend Samuel Urlsperger, Pastor of St Anna’s Lutheran Church in Augsburg, Germany, working through the “Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge” in England, made arrangements for the group of Salzburgers to travel to Georgia.
