Georgia's founder is James Oglethorpe. Oglethorpe was a British soldier and a member of Parliament. After one of his friends contracted smallpox in debtor's prison and died, Oglethorpe became involved in prison reform.

His work ultimately led to the release of hundreds of people from debtor's prison. This influx of released prisoners made England's unemployment problem worse, so Oglethorpe proposed a solution - a new colony made up of released prisoners and unemployed people.

The colony would provide a new start for the colonists and serve as a military buffer between the English colonies in the New World and the Spanish colony in Florida.
