Biographical/Historical Note

The Central Bank of Georgia was established in 1828 by the Georgia State Legislature using state funds. The bank's directors were directly appointed by the governor. The bank did not closely monitor its funds, and it closed in 1856, resulting in the state losing a large amount of money from the endeavor.
