GEORGIANA

GEORGIANA was the name chosen in 1763 for a proposed colony in honor of the king of England. It was to be established below the junction of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers by a group of former soldiers under the leadership of General Phineas Lyman of Connecticut. In 1770, he was instead granted 20,000 acres in the vicinity of Natchez, in a less promising location farther south on the Mississippi. He led a number of families, mainly from Connecticut and Massachusetts, to that region, but after Lyman died in 1774, and with very little support during the Revolution, the colony failed.
