Georgia Day

Interesting facts about Georgia: Georgia was named for King George II of England. The City of Savanna was the first steamship to cross the Atlantic. It sailed from Georgia. Georgia is the nations number one producer of the three Ps - peanuts, pecans, and peaches.
Georgia Day is the holiday which the U.S. state of Georgia recognizes in honor of its colonial founding as the Province of Georgia. On February 12, 1733, James Oglethorpe landed the first settlers in the Ann, at what was to become Georgiaís first city (and later the first state capital), Savannah. Not a public holiday, it was created by Georgiaís General Assembly, which provided that Feb. 12, "the anniversary of the landing of the first colonists in Georgia under Oglethorpe"ó be observed in the public schools as Georgia Day. The law was never repealed, but was not included in the code when it was officially compiled in 1981. Its official legal status is unclear.
Georgia Day is now observed on or around February 12 at the Georgia Day Parade hosted by the Georgia Historical Society as part of the Georgia History Festival, a two-week celebration of Georgia history.
