Georgia Public Records

Located in the southeastern region of the United States, Georgia was the last of the original thirteen colonies, and the fourth state to ratify the U.S. Constitution on the 2nd of January, 1788. However, despite the state's early adoption of the Constitution, Georgia would also become one of the seven original Confederate states to secede, only to return to the Union again on July 15, 1870. With a total area of 59,425 square miles, Georgia is approximately 230 miles wide by 298 miles in length. It is comprised of 2.6% water. The climate of Georgia is mainly considered to be humid subtropical. Moderate to heavy precipitation is typical throughout the state, and hot, humid summers are the norm, except at the highest elevations. Georgia is prone to tornadoes, and on occasion, hurricanes. Georgia prospers due to several industries including food, business and the military. Though Georgia produces a number of agricultural products, it is the leading producer of pecans in the world. In the corporate arena, Georgia is home to over 25 Fortune 1000 company headquarters, in addition to media powerhouses such as CNN, TBS and The Weather Channel. On the military front, Georgia is one of the strongest military regions in the country.
