Georgia state is one of the largest US states on the east side of the Mississippi River and one of the youngest states of the 13 former English colonies. Founded in 1732, Georgia's boundaries then included then present-day states of Alabama and Mississippi.
Georgia is a state with diverse geological features. Georgia has more soil types than any other states in the US. Georgia stretches from the Appalachian Mountains in the north to the marshes to the southeast and the Okefenokee Swamp to the South. The Savannah and Chattahoochee rivers constitute much of Georgia's eastern and western boundaries with South Carolina and Alabama.The capital of Georgia is Atlanta.
The Early economy in Georgia was based on the slavery system where slaves work the plantations. Georgia was one of the first states to secede from the Union in 1861. Strongly supporting the Confederate States of America (Confederacy) when during the Civil War, Georgia paid a high price in suffering from the destruction of the war.
In the early 21st century, Georgia's prosperity came from the service industry which was concentrated around Atlanta which benefited from the city's developed air and rail connectivity. Atlanta is home to Georgia's major banking, utilities, food and beverage and information technology companies. Driven by Atlanta's prosperity, Georgia leads the Deep South in terms of economic growth.
