On June 9, 1732, King George II signed the charter granting James Oglethorpe and a group of trustees permission to establish a thirteenth British colony to be named in honor of the King. The motives for the grant were to aid the worthy poor in England , strengthen the Colonies, increase imperial trade and navigation, and to provide a buffer for Carolina against Spanish Florida. Even though the King had granted the charter for the colony, Oglethorpe wanted to get the consent of the Indians inhabiting the area. There had been an agreement with them that no more colonies would be located below the Carolina border.

Atlanta Georgia City History
Atlanta was founded in 1837 as the end of the Western & Atlantic railroad line (it was first named Marthasville in honor of the then-governor's daughter, nicknamed Terminus for its rail location, and then changed soon after to Atlanta, the feminine of Atlantic -- as in the railroad).  Today the fast-growing city remains a transportation hub, not just for the country but also for the world: Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport is one of the nation's busiest in daily passenger flights.  Direct flights to Europe, South America, and Asia have made metro Atlanta easily accessible to the more than 1,000 international businesses that operate here and the more than 50 countries that have representation in the city through consulates, trade offices, and chambers of commerce.  The city has emerged as a banking center and is the world headquarters for 13 Fortune 500 companies.
