When Oglethorpe Saved Georgia

St. Simons Island, Georgia

From Georgia History Stories:

"...with a little band of only eight hundred men and three ships, Oglethorpe had driven off a Spanish armada of thirty-six warships and an army of five thousand men and had saved Georgia and South Carolina and perhaps the whole of English America, from Spanish conquest! There is no more brilliant event in American history.
