How was the founding of Georgia in the 13 Colonies significant?
Georgia is where England sent all of its criminals, debtors and other people it would rather not have in England. Georgia was called "the great social experiment" because of this, since they had so many people of different social groups in such close proximity. Georgia then served as a buffer zone for the rich state of South Carolina, from French-owned Florida. The british saw it in their best interest that if the french decided to attack, they would have to fight through all of the debtors and criminals before reaching the manors and gentry of South Carolina.
