Seal of Georgia (U.S. state)
The Great Seal of the State of Georgia is a device, used to authenticate government documents executed by the state of Georgia. The first great seal of the state was specified in the State Constitution of 1777, its current form was adopted in 1914, its specifications are spelled out by statute. The obverse of the seal is centered on the coat of arms of the state: an arch with three columns, the arch symbolizing the state's Constitution and the columns representing the three branches of government; the words of the official state motto, "Wisdom, Moderation," are inscribed on scrolls that are wrapped around the columns. A member of the Georgia Militia stands between the second and third columns, holding a drawn sword in his right hand, representing the citizen/soldier's defense of the state's Constitution. A border surrounds the coat of arms, the motto "State of Georgia, 1776" is inscribed outside the arms; the reverse of the seal contains an image of Georgia's coast, with a ship arriving to take aboard tobacco and cotton, symbolizing Georgia's export trade.
A second, smaller boat represents the state's "internal traffic." Towards the left of the image, there is a flock of sheep. The motto "Agriculture and Commerce, 1776" is inscribed around the outside of the image; the dates listed on the obverse and reverse of the seal were 1799. The dates were changed by the Georgia state legislature in 1914 to reflect the date of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In 1902, the Georgia legislature mandated that the coat of arms be included in the state flag of Georgia. Either the coat of arms or the state seal has appeared on every state flag since that date. By law, the Secretary of State is the official custodian of the Great Seal, attached to official papers by executive order of the Governor; this custodianship has led to some controversies: From 1868 to 1871, during the era of Reconstruction, the Great Seal was not used for state business. It had been hidden under the home of wartime Secretary of State Nathan C. Barnett, to prevent its use by Federal forces.
The Reconstruction government, having failed to locate the official seal, had a duplicate seal fabricated. The duplicate was a perfect match for the original, except for one small detail: the soldier held his sword in his left hand; the era of Reconstruction government in Georgia became known as the "Period of the False Seal". In 1872, when Georgians re-took control of the government, Barnett unearthed the original seal and returned it to the Capitol. In December 1946, Governor-elect Eugene Talmadge died before assuming office. Talmadge's son, was appointed governor by the State Legislature; this was challenged by the Lieutenant Governor-elect Melvin Thompson, who maintained that the state constitution authorized him to assume the office upon the death of the governor. Outgoing governor Ellis Arnall announced that he would not relinquish the office until it was clear who the new governor was; the political turmoil that ensued became known as the "Three Governors Controversy". In January 1947, while all three governors occupied different portions of the State Capitol, Secretary of State Ben W. Fortson, Jr. took the seal and hid it.
This prevented any of the claimants to the governorship from executing any business until the Supreme Court of Georgia could make a ruling on the rightful winner. Thompson was declared "acting governor" until a special election could be held to fill the remainder of the original term. Herman Talmadge served out the remaining portion of his father's term. In 1857, the University of Georgia constructed a cast iron representation of the architectural elements featured on the obverse of the Great Seal, it stands at the north entrance of the campus, has become known as The Arch. Fashioned from existing material, The Arch is a representation but not an exact replica of the elements of the Seal. Serving both symbolic and practical functions, it was connected to a barrier which kept cows from roaming over parts of the campus, was known as The Gate. Today, The Arch is an important symbol of the University. According to legend, it is bad luck for freshmen to walk under the arch. Legend suggests.

Politics of Georgia (U.S. state)
The Province of Georgia was founded in 1733 as a British colony by a royal charter through a trust led by James Oglethorpe, a member of Parliament who had envisioned it as a place to resettle volunteering debtors instead of sending them to prison. It was named after King George II, the reigning monarch of the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Thirteen Colonies at that time, they banned slavery. The province recruited yeomen settlers to occupy land where the native Yamasee had lived before the Yamasee War, acted as a buffer to protect earlier settlements in South Carolina from the Spanish presence in Florida, hinder West African slaves from escaping and reaching lands beyond the frontier and the control of their owners. Although most early Georgia colonists were English and German artisans seeking arable land or freedom of religion, many of them complained to their leaders that the ban on slavery created a labor shortage that impeded local finances, compared to other Southern colonies. After Spain failed to conquer the area during the War of Jenkins' Ear, the province legalized slavery in 1749, altering the balance of power in the settlements.
Thousands of slaves were imported to work on plantations producing rice and sugar. Their owners South Carolina planters, were wealthier than the early settlers and soon gained most of the official political appointments in the Crown colony that replaced the trusteeship in 1754. Georgia had two rival governments during the American Revolutionary War: the appointed Loyalist regime of James Wright and the Patriot administration led by planter Archibald Bulloch. After escaping revolutionary forces, Wright fled the colony in 1776 but organized a return in 1778 backed by British military force. After the war, he left again in 1782, evacuating with British forces following the end of hostilities and victory by the rebels; the British evacuated thousands of slaves to whom they had promised freedom if they left rebel masters. They were resettled in the London. Bulloch, who died in 1777, his colleagues founded a republican government. In 1788 Georgia was the fourth state to ratify the new U. S. Constitution.
Georgia had been settled from the along the Savannah River. The drive of settlers for westward expansion made territorial issues prominent. An expansion from the Altamaha River to the St. Marys River and the drawing of southern and northern borders neglected a western boundary; the colony assumed. The federal government worked to reduce such early colonial claims, in the interest of establishing more states. In addition, nationwide anger among the 13 states about the Yazoo land scandal resulted in Georgia leaders defining their claim in 1802 at the Chattahoochee River up to its head of navigation at the site of modern Columbus and a line running north by west from there. In the early United States, most Georgia politicians were aligned with the Jeffersonian Democratic-Republican Party, favoring strict constructionism in constitutional law and states' rights over federal power. Unlike the Federalist Party, which backed strong central government, Jeffersonians wanted a freer hand in both Indian removal and expanded plantation slavery.
Before the Revolution, Georgia was home to Cherokee. The advent of the cotton gin in 1793, which made short-staple cotton profitable in the uplands of the state, the Georgia Gold Rush in 1829 spurred runs on land; the Georgia Land Lottery tried to reduce corruption by giving native lands to poorer citizens, but did so as native treaties such as the Treaty of Indian Springs were broken or revised. By the 1830s, Georgia politics was split by the Jacksonian Democratic Party and the Anti-Jacksonian Whig Party. Congress passed the Indian Removal Act of 1830, favored by Jackson to void Indian land claims in the Southeast and permit development; the U. S. Supreme Court ruled against Georgia's encroachment on other Indian land in Worcester v. Georgia in 1832, on the grounds that Indian natives were entitled to federal protection, but the ruling was ignored by both presidents and the state, the federal government proceeded to forcibly remove Indians to west of the Mississippi River. The Cherokee were the last to be forced out, led along what they referred to as the Trail of Tears to Indian Territory, during which many people died.
Former Native American lands were developed for cotton cultivation, planters brought in thousands of slaves to work the new lands. In 1842 the state legislature declared. After the Compromise of 1850 tried to resolve slavery among the states as an issue of balance of power, the Georgia Platform was accepted by many Southerners as the policy by which secession could be avoided. In the 1850s, most state Whigs joined a reinvented Democratic Party that became inflexible on the issues of supporting the expansion of slavery and a devolved federalism; the victory of Abraham Lincoln, considered a moderate abolitionist, in the presidential election of 1860 was perceived as a threat to Georgia interests. This large slave society was the fifth state to secede from the Union. A founding member of the Confederate States of America in 1861, the state sent tens of thousands of soldiers to fight in the American Civil War; as in other southern states, white conservative Democrats regained control of the state legislature in the 1870s, through a combination of force and fraud, with widespread voter suppression of black Republicans.
At the turn of the 20th century, Georgia passed a new constitution and amendments that in practice disenfranchised most blacks and many poor whites. The exclusion of blacks from the political system was maintained well into the

The current bridge was built as a replacement to the original lift bridge, twice struck by ships, it is the longest-spanning bridge in Georgia and is 480 feet tall. It is the 76th-largest cable-stayed bridge in the world, it was named for poet Sidney Lanier. Each year, there is the "Bridge Run" sponsored by Southeast Georgia Health System when the south side of the bridge is closed to traffic and people register to run the bridge; the Chetoogeta Mountain Tunnel refers to two different railroad tunnels traveling through Chetoogeta Mountain in the northwestern part of the state. The first tunnel was completed on May 7, 1850, as part of the construction of the Western and Atlantic Railroad, the first state road in Georgia, it is 1,447 feet in length. It was renovated in 1998-2000 and is now open to the public as a owned historic site; the second tunnel is 1,557 feet long.
It is still under lease from the Georgia Department of Transportation. It, like the entire A subdivision, is a major route between Atlanta and Chattanooga; the nearby town of Tunnel Hill, Georgia was founded and named for the first tunnel, was the supply base for its construction materials and worker housing. Georgia has a system of State Bicycle Routes; the city of Atlanta limits the number of CPNCs to 1,600 and is the maximum number of licensed taxis allowed within the city.

Culture of Georgia (U.S. state)
The culture of Georgia is a subculture of the Southern United States that has come from blending heavy amounts of rural Scots-Irish culture with the culture of Africans and Native Americans. Since the late 20th century areas of Northern and the Atlanta metropolitan area of Georgia have experienced much growth from people moving from the mid-west and northeastern parts of the U. S. A. and along with many immigrants from Latin America. Southern culture remains prominent in the Appalachian areas of the state. Georgians share a history with the other Southern States that includes the institution of slavery, the American Civil War, the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement; the people of Georgia are stereotyped both by their manners and for being religious. Language in Georgia is a combination of several different sub-dialects of Southern American English found in different areas of the state; the state's culture is influenced by its economy, most notably from forestry and its many benefits to the state and its people.
Georgia's cuisine is integral to its culture with such foods as seafood, cornbread and grits being part of the people of Georgia's diet and economy. On a more abstract level, Georgia's culture can be seen and heard in its literature, sports, film and art. Georgia is known for such authors as Margaret Mitchell. E. M. and Ray Charles. Georgia's culture originated with its settlement by British colonists after the founding of the colony by James Edward Oglethorpe in 1732; the early colonists were English though there were significant amounts of Scots-Irish, Italians, Sephardic Jews and Swiss, among others. It is the amalgamation of these disparate ethnicities, along with the influx of African slaves and their descendants, which has created the modern culture of the state and the modern Georgian. Stereotypical Georgian traits include manners known as "Southern hospitality", a strong sense of community and shared culture, a distinctive Southern dialect. Georgia's Southern heritage makes turkey and dressing a traditional holiday dish during both Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Movies like Gone with the Wind and the book If I Ever Get Back to Georgia, I'm Gonna Nail My Feet to the Ground by Lewis Grizzard lampoon Georgia culture and mannerisms. Many notable individuals come from Georgia. Comedian Jeff Foxworthy is an Atlanta native. Actress Julia Roberts is a native of a suburb just west of Atlanta. Former U. S. President Jimmy Carter was born in Georgia. Civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta. Ryan Seacrest from Marietta, baseball legend Jackie Robinson was born in Cairo, Georgia. Other notable people from Georgia include Otis Redding, Little Richard, Travis Tritt and Alice Walker; as with the rest of the South, Georgia is religious, with the predominant religion in the state being Christianity. In fact, 85% of Georgians are Christians with 76% of those being Protestant, 8% Catholic and 1% designated as Other. Georgia is home to several historic religious sites. Among them are Congregation Mickve Israel, located in Savannah, Georgia; the state is the home of four prominent religious seminaries.
They are the Candler School of a part of Emory University in Atlanta. The Southern dialect in Georgia is made up of several sub dialects of Southern American English. For instance, the Coastal Southern dialect as well as the Gullah language, a dialect spoken by African American communities, can be found along Georgia's coast. Southern Appalachian English is found in north Georgia. Georgia leads the United States in timber production, timber is its highest valued agricultural product. Georgia is second in the nation with more than 3,800 certified Tree Farms that total nearly eight million acres. Moreover, Georgia was the first state in the nation to license foresters and today the state has about 1,200 licensed foresters; the timber industry generates 177,000 jobs and 66% of a total land area of 36,800,000 acres is forested. Georgia's forests benefit the state and its people by providing habitats for diverse wildlife; such diversity allows for much outdoor recreation, including hunting, fishing and hiking.
Each year, more than two million people enjoy wildlife-related activities in Georgia, directly contributing more than $1.6 billion to the state's economy. Georgia's cuisine includes a variety of different foods ranging from seafood, corn on the cob and chicken and dumplings to Brunswick stew, fried chicken and cornbread. Other well known and loved foods in the state include pecans and peanuts; the state prepared food is grits. Barbecuing, a favorite pastime in Georgia, is integral to the state's culture. All types of meat are barbecued in Georgia, but pork is traditionally the most popular meat in the state. Many people in Georgia barbecue for tailgate parties, for the Fo
