Shipping from the State of Georgia to South Dakota
The youngest of the 13 former English colonies, Georgia was founded in 1732 and included in the union on January 2, 1788, as the fourth state. By the mid-19th century, Georgia had the greatest number of plantations of any state in the South, and in many aspects, it emerged as a breeding house of plantation culture in the country.
Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Georgia is bordered by Tennessee to the north, South Carolina to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Alabama to the west with Atlanta as the capital. Atlanta is the largest city and it is called by the nickname of Peach State.
It is also well-known as the “Empire State of the South”. The state tree is the Live Oak and Cherokee rose is considered the state flower. ‘Wisdom, Justice and Moderation’- is the state motto.
Shipping to the State of Georgia to South Dakota
The territory that would become South Dakota was added to the United States in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase. The first permanent American settlement was established at Fort Pierre by the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804. White settlement of the territory in the 1800sled to clashes with the Sioux, as some of the lands had been granted to the tribe by an earlier treaty. Nevertheless, the territory was incorporated into the union on November 2, 1889, along with North Dakota. Due to a controversy over which state would be admitted to the union first, President Benjamin Harrison shuffled the bills and signed one at random, with the order going unrecorded, though North Dakota is traditionally listed first. Today, a major part of South Dakota’s economy is fueled by tourism–visitors flock to the state to see Mt. Rushmore, which features 60-foot-tall sculptures of the faces of Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and Lincoln. Famous South Dakotans include newscaster Tom Brokaw, senator, and vice president Hubert Humphrey and model-actress Cheryl Ladd.
