The colony of Georgia was
founded by James Edward
Oglethorpe proposed to found
a colony in the region
disputed between Spanish
Oglethorpe got a concession by King George II in 1732, and in
1733 the first colonists came to the region. In the colony the
slavery and the consumption of alcohol would be suppressed.
But Georgia couldn’t grow, and when Oglethorpe left the
colony, these restrictions would be deleted.
In Texas in 1690 Spanish decided to occupy the region.
When they arrived in the Neches river valley the Spanish
founded two missions that were then abandoned.
In 1719 the French started a conquest mission in Eastern
Texas. But in 1720 the Spanish sovereignty was established
For the first colonists life wasn’t easy because the region was
inhabited by dangerous Indians. These and other
problems stopped the growing of the colony.
