Georgia, nicknamed as the Peach State or the Empire State of the South, was established in 1732. James Oglethorpe, a British Parliament member, aimed to use the state as a place for prisoners who failed to pay their debts. In his view, Georgia was a perfect place to give the prisoners a new life and a second chance in life.
However, the state shows evidence of early human existence, especially during the Paleoindian period. The Clovis culture is believed to have first lived in Georgia due to the discovered projectile points. During the Woodland period, the native Americans occupied the area. They had permanent settlements, establishing villages, and practiced horticulture.
Georgia then joined the union on January 2, 1788, with its capital in Atlanta and the state motto "Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation." The state's history has proved to be very fundamental in the Georgia post offices and services. The United States Postal Services captures Georgia's vast history in a variety of post stamps.
One of them is the stamp that captures Georgia's ratification of the united states constitution in 1988. This stamp has the date of Georgia's admission to the union, and the post offices offer it at 22 cents. During the post office's issue of state flowers and bird's collection, Georgia's state flower, the Cherokee rose, and the state bird, the brown thrasher, were put on a 20 cents stamp.
The Georgia state flag is among the state's significant symbols. The post offices captured it in the Commemoration of The Bicentennial of the American revolution issue. The former Georgia flag captured in the stamps is known as the flag of Trenton. Currently, Georgia's postal code is GA. There are multiple USPS post offices in Georgia that serve the residents' mailing needs.
They can be found in Duluth, Cumming, Monroe, Decatur, Forest Park, Riverdale, Tucker, Brunswick, Macon, Augusta, and many other towns.
