Overview
Visit 14 ghost towns in Crawford County plus old-town Byron, Georgia, based on reconstructions gleaned from in-depth historical research. View portraits of early settlers who established communities along railroad tracks and beside gristmills. Examine pictures of pioneer towns and historic landmarks during the early to mid-1900s. Visit the Civil War town where Margaret Mitchell conceptualized the plantation 'Tara' in her renowned book, "Gone with Wind." See the family home where the immortalized Joanna Troutman saw the bright star that inspired her to craft the Texas state flag that was flown in battle against Santa Anna's Mexican forces by the Georgia Volunteers in the Texas War of Independence, 1835-36. Relive notable historical events and related humorous accounts such as the jilted bride who, on her wedding day, ripped off her wedding dress after learning her betrothed had just married someone else. Book contains over 200 photographs to make history come alive on the printed page.
