James Oglethorpe’s victory in the 1742 Battle of Bloody Marsh led to?

James Oglethorpe's victory in the 1742 Battle of Bloody Marsh led to?

A. the demise of the Creek Nation.

B. British retreat from Georgia.

==> C. the end of the Spanish threat in Georgia.

D. the colonization of Florida and South Carolina.


The Battle of Bloody Marsh was, however, a

critical victory for the English. By easily driving

back the Spanish during the fighting of July 7,

1742, James Oglethorpe forced Governor

Montiano to hesitate in his plans to attack

and reduce Fort Frederica. This gave the

general time to plant information in the

Spanish camp that reinforcements were on

their way. The timely arrival of English ships

a few days later convinced Montiano that the

reports were true. He withdrew back to St.

Augustine on July 15th.


I hope this is helpful.

How is Georgia State day celebrated?

Georgia Day is the holiday which the U.S. state of Georgia recognizes in honor of its colonial founding as the Province of Georgia. On February 12, 1733, James Oglethorpe landed the first settlers in the HMS Anne, at what was to become Georgia's first city (and later the first state capital), Savannah. It is not a public holiday, but is mainly observed in schools and by some local civic groups for its historic importance to the state.
