What was the Southernmost state of the original 13 states?
Georgia was the southernmost of the 13 colonies that became the United States.
Thirteen stripes represent the first 13 states of the United States of America. Many people also believe they represent the 13 for the original colonies. But, in 1795 our flag had 15 stripes and 15 stars for the 15 states of the USA. Then in 1818 Congress reverted back to the original 13 stripes for the first 13 states adding stars for each new state.
