Accepted Answer

The name of the settlement the Salzburgers built that was 25 miles northwest of Savannah was called "New Ebenezer." They opened many silk mills, and was considered a "religious utopia on the Georgia frontier."

Suggested Answer

The Salzburgers settled the town of Ebenezer about 25 miles upriver of Savannah. Back home, these Lutheran Protestants had been persecuted because of their religious beliefs; settling in the new colony of Georgia offered religious freedom, free land, and a new start.I hope I helped
