Georgia is the largest state
About North Georgia

Georgia is the largest state east of Mississippi?

On your website (Facts about North Georgia and the entire state), it states that Georgia is the "Largest state east of the Mississippi". Not true. Michigan is far, far larger at 96,810 square miles. Florida and Wisconsin are also larger.

Actually, we were quite surprised by this statement. Since elementary school we have always been taught that Georgia was the largest state east of the Mississippi. We decided to check the World Almanac And Book of Facts for the answer, and indeed, Georgia is the largest state. The figure you are quoting includes an undefined "water area" of 30,000 square miles, almost one-third of the total land area. This means that the figure includes a substantial amount of Lake Michigan and Lake Huron. To a lesser extent the same is true for Florida and Wisconsin
