The Georgia Colony (The Thirteen Colonies) by Dennis Brindell Fradin
Colonial Georgia through 1788 when it became the fourth state to join the union. This book includes biographical information on some of the people who shaped the then and future. For readers 9 to 12 years old.
Carved in Stone: The History of Stone Mountain Carved in Stone: The History of Stone Mountain by David B. Freeman
In 1915 the United Daughters of the Confederacy leased the land and commissioned Gutzon Borglum, later the sculptor of Mount Rushmore, to carve the Lost Cause memorial on the mountain where the second Ku Klux Klan was resurrected. David Freeman's Carved in Stone narrates the development of Stone Mountain from natural wonder to historic site to recreational park that hosts five million visitors a year. Referred to by some as The Eighth Wonder of the World, Stone Mountain, located 16 miles from Atlanta, Georgia, is the largest exposed mass of granite in the world.
It Happened in Georgia It Happened in Georgia by James Andrew Crutchfield
Fascinating stories about twenty-seven events that helped make Georgia what it is today, including little-know episodes that shaped Georgia's colorful history. General Sherman marched across it, John Muir walked across it, FDR soaked in its hot springs, and Hank Aaron hit an important homerun out of one of its parks. It all happened in Georgia. In an easy-to-read style that is entertaining as well as informative, It Happened in Georgia presents some of the most captivating episodes from Georgia's amazing history.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story by John Berendt
Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty, early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of non-fiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case.
