Stories of Georgia

ByJoel Chandler Harris

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Originally published in 1896, this book illustrates the history of the state of Georgia through a collection of rare stories, unknown to many or now out of print. The narratives are grouped so as to form a series of connecting links in the rise and progess of Georgia. In his Preface, the author states, "It was in this State [Georgia] that some of the most surprising and spectacular scenes of the Revolution took place. In one corner of Georgia those who were fighting for the independence of the republic made their last desperate stand; and if they had surrendered to the odds that faced them, the battle of King's Mountain would never have been fought, Greene's southern campaign would have been crippled, and the struggle for liberty in the south would have ended in smoke. It is to illustrate the larger events that these stories have been written."
