GeorgiaGov Launches About Georgia
Over the course of the year, the Governor's Office, our call centers and even libraries field hundreds of questions about Georgia: When was it founded? What's the capital? What's the state bird?
Most of the time the callers are students working on reports for school; others are people from out of state wanting a bit more information about Georgia.
We've tried to make this information easier to find from our site. A new section of GeorgiaGov, titled "About Georgia," contains basic information about the state - the history, an outline of the government and how it works, facts, figures and symbols and more research information from websites such as the New Georgia Encyclopedia.
