Synopsis

Georgia’s history is more than just peaches—it’s a story of prisoners, preachers, and presidents who rose above the status quo to help transform a nation.

Georgia has been home to many influential figures in US history, including President Jimmy Carter and Martin Luther King Jr. But how much do you really know about the state?

Did you know, for instance, that Georgia was the last of the Thirteen Colonies to be created? Or that it was the last state to be admitted into the Union after the Civil War.

This introductory guide takes you on a journey through Georgia’s past, starting with the earliest settlers of the land to more current events, such as the 1996 Summer Olympics. This page-turning read will provide you with interesting facts about one of the largest states in the South.

Here’s just a small fraction of what you’ll discover:

The people who called Georgia home long before it was called GeorgiaAn easy-to-read account of Georgia’s pre-Revolution historyHow a preacher was able to unify the nation for warFascinating accounts of the people and events that transformed AmericaThe truth of why such a weak state became a pillar of the nationThe heartbreaking reality of Jim Crow laws in the SouthAn amazing victory of a down-on-his-luck governorAnd so much more!
