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

This book is written for those of us who love Georgia Bulldogs Football and who cannot wait until our next win. There is no need to be impatient because as of 2022, Georgia is now at the top of the pack and the Bulldogs win big games all the time. Ask the others! In 2022, of course we all know, Georgia became the College Football Champions. The founding of the University was in 1785 and before Georgia eventually played its first football game, the first book was read at UGA right after Abraham Baldwin of the University of Georgia drafted legislation that became the charter of the university. Georgia student life moved quickly as the first student organization was founded as the Demosthenian Literary Society was founded. The first commencement was held with Josiah Miggs, President presiding in 1804. For its first 50 years the school was known as Franklin College. Soon after being established, Charles Herty got football going on campus in the fall of 1886 and UGA played its first intercollegiate football game. It took a while but in 1929, the school built its first stadium Sanford Stadium. The rest of the college football is not necessarily thrilled that Georgia became so good, so fast, and now they are recognized as the best team in the nation. Georgia won its first National Championship in 1942. In 1980, Georgia repeated its national championship with freshman Herschel Walker leading the way. The Bulldogs remained a national powerhouse with a lot of close calls to greatness until 2022 when it again won another National Championship with a coach who was a great Georgia graduate. Go Bulldogs! This book captures the whole great story of Georgia football. It takes the reader through stories about Georgia’s great immortal coaches and great players over the years. You will not be able to put this book down.

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.

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.
