From the storyteller behind the Uncle Remus stories comes a young person's history of Georgia. Herein are 27 stories about prominent people and events in the History of the State of Georgia which stretch from the Spanish explorations of De Soto through the founding of the Georgia Colony, the War of Independence and the American Civil War to the post war peace. These stories are accompanied by 45 pen and ink illustrations by an unknown artist. Today, more than one hundred years later, the timeless appeal of these stories makes them an interesting and valuable item of Georgiana. Some of the stories in this volume are: A Search For Treasure. Oglethorpe And His Gentle Colony The Empress Of Georgia Aunt Nancy Hart. A Negro Patriot. The Yazoo Fraud The Cotton Gin. The Creeks And The Creek War Two Famous Indian Chiefs. A Queer Case. Georgia Wit And Humor. Slavery And Secession. Georgia In The War. A Daring Adventure. The Reconstruction Period. In preparing the pages in this volume, Joel Chandler Harris (1848 – 1908) has had in view the desirability of familiarizing the Citizens of Georgia with the salient facts of the State's history in a way that shall make the further study of that history not only interesting, but also a delight. The characterizations herein were for the first time brought together from many sources which, at the time, were little known and, at the time, out of print. However, the history of Georgia from 1896 (when this book was published) until the present now exists in altogether different locations. Considering Chandler-Harris compiled and penned this volume aged about 35, here’s an opportunity for a budding young author to add an addendum and bring this volume up to date…. 10% of the publisher’s profit will be donated to Charities. ------- KEYWORDS/TAGS: Stories from Georgia, Joel Chandler-Harris, action, active, adventure, Adams, American, American Civil War, Andrews, army, attack, Augusta, Mary Aunt Nancy, Austin, Bosomworth, Brer Rabbit, British, Brown, Bunkley, camp, Captain, Carolina, charge, Cherokees, Clarke, Colonel, colonists, Colony, commander, condition, Congress, convention, cotton gin, County, courage, Crawford, Creeks, declare, dollars, Dooly, duty, Elijah, England, expedition, Florida, Fuller, General, Georgia, Government, Governor, history, war of independence, Indians, Jackson, James, Judge, King, Legislature, Liberty, locomotive, Longstreet, Major, march, Matthews, McGillivray, Mcintosh, militia, Mississippi, money, movement, nationhood, negroes, North, officers, Oglethorpe, peace, President, Province, queen, Revolution, River, Robert, Sallette, Savannah, secession, slaves, soldiers, South, Spaniards, spirit, State, Thomas, Toombs, Tories, Railway train, USA, Uncle Remus, United states, villages, Washington, Whitney, William, wounded, Yazoo Fraud

He ran like a crazed jackrabbit, according to one awe-struck sportswriter. Clint Castleberry was already an Atlanta-area football sensation when he arrived at Georgia Tech in 1942, and in one meteoric college season he became a national sports hero as well. He was the first college freshman ever to be voted All-American. At least one Heisman Trophy was all but certain. Though weighing just 155 pounds, he seemed destined to become one of the greatest tailbacks in college football history. But then World War II intervened, and Castleberry became, instead, another young man whose destiny was cut short. His #19 is the only number ever retired in the illustrious history of Georgia Tech football. Bill Chastain weaves Clint Castleberry’s story around other legends of Georgia Tech football--including John Heisman, William Alexander, and Bobby Dodd—to create a glorious portrait of a proud football tradition and America’s Greatest Generation.

The book includes a detailed index including names of people, places, streets, and businesses, the columns are arranged in chronological order, and 30 images are provided. Lisa Land Cooper states in the book's introduction, "At this point it was it was becoming a bit overwhelming for me to remember what I had published within the columns and what still "lived" within my notes, so I decided to publish the early columns with a detailed index, so I could have all of the early columns in one easy place to search. My work to find more pieces of the puzzle is ongoing."

Mr. Landrum deftly captures the key political developments in Spartanburg County for the century following the Revolution. Special chapters are also devoted to the issues of religion, temperance, education, and, of course, secession. Landrum's real concern, however, is with the people of Spartanburg County; indeed the final 500 pages of the book are devoted to biographical and genealogical sketches of its families and luminaries.

"Because of rejection and abuse when she was a teenager, Georgia Parker resolves to hide the truth about her heritage. At twenty-two, when the man she loves rejects her, she's sure it's because he learned her secret. To forget, she agrees to a temporary job as a fashion model at the famous upscale Emeralds Department Stores. Her talent and work ethic quickly propel her within reach of a high executive level. Georgia finds the man of her dreams but her future is threatened when two men, with different agendas - one bent on revenge and the other with unrelenting lust -- know her secret and plague her with brutal blackmail. Her appetite for justice, not only for herself but others, makes her fair game for adversaries to burn every bridge that would lead her to success and happiness. Even when she fights back, her efforts are thwarted when a shocking murder so entangles her, she is in danger of losing both her career and her man" --
