“This is a fascinating, well-researched account of the legend, lore, and mystique of the Georgia coast…an extremely useful resource about tidewater Georgia.”
Though the Georgia coast is a mere 110 miles long, a wealth of historic beauty—natural and manmade—lies between the Savannah and St. Mary’s Rivers. The last-settled and poorest of the original thirteen colonies of the United States, Georgia is a unique combination of war-torn history and genteel character.Here you’ll find stories of Civil War soldiers, pioneers and settlers, Native Americans, seafarers and pirates (including Blackbeard), and even a ghost or two.
Some of the places you’ll visit:
These and other lighthouses, plantations, churches, forts, and summer cottages of wealthy Northerners and Southerners alike stand as testaments to the rich and provocative history of this, the most Southern of Southern states. Each site is illustrated with a full color painting.
