城市介紹

喬治亞州(Georgia

1733年二月,一小批的拓荒著跟隨著英國慈善家同時也是國會議員的奧格爾索普沿著賽凡納河一路往上,來到了亞瑪克拉斷崖。他們一行人在此停留,並著手開始整建新的家園,而今這個地方是喬治亞州的第四大城:賽凡納市。喬治亞州是全美國曾被殖民的州中,唯一一個由貧窮的難民所興建的。

自建州開始,喬治亞州一直是美國南方一商業重鎮,本地的輕工業相當發達,造紙業更是興盛,是美國紙漿生產最主要的地區之一。其他如棉業紡織、運輸業以及食品加工業也都非常盛行。喬治亞州目前是全美生產花生、山核桃、蠶豆以及西班牙乾椒最多的地方。

位於喬治亞州的賽凡納市被譽為全美國最美麗的城市,擁有豐富的文化歷史遺跡;而本州首府的亞特蘭大市不僅是美國南方交通運輸的重要樞紐,更是1996年奧林匹克運動會的舉辦城市。

世界文學名著「亂世佳人」就是以內戰時期的喬治亞州為其故事背景。

In early February 1733, a small group of settlers was led by James Oglethorpe. They traced the stream of the Savannah River and arrived at Yamacra Bluff on February 12th. Oglethorpe and his followers began the process of establishing their new home, and this city is the Savannah of today. Amongst all the fifty states, Georgia is the only city that was founded and colonized by those “poor and deserving” refugees.

Since the establishment of the state, Georgia has become the commercial leader of the region, being rich in light industry. Georgia is one of the states that produce most pulp within the nation and now ranks first in the production of peanuts, pecans, lima beans and pimiento peppers.

Savannah, a city full of cultural and historical heritages, has been called "this nation's most beautiful city". The capital of the state, Atlanta, has become the leading transportation center of the southeast America.

The famous Margaret Mitchell novel, Gone With the Wind was set in Georgia, and the background of the story was the American Civil War.
