If There Has to Be a First Post Then This Is It

Georgia is on my mind.

A place that started out as a haven for debtors and where high hopes were put in the tiny but powerful silk worm.

A place with interesting characters such as the outspoken Zell Miller and visionaries such as Henry Grady who coined the phrase "New South". Where politicians always entertain by riding a bicycle backwards in the style of Lester Maddox or slug U.S. Capital policemen in the footsteps of Cynthia McKinney.

A place with interesting historical events such as the Yazoo Land Fraud, a time of three governors, the Temple bombing, and Sherman's March to the Sea.

A place with hallowed battle fields such as Kettle Creek, Chickamauga, and Kennesaw Mountain.

The hub of the Civil Rights Movement with such citizens as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Hosiah Williams, Ralph David Abernathy, and others.

The home of The Varsity, the world's busiest airport, and the city too busy to hate.

The home of natural wonders such as Stone Mountain, Cloudland Canyon , Cumberland Island, and Tallulah Gorge.

Georgia is a wonderful place to live and learn. After reading some of my postings I hope you will agree with me.

We have some interesting stories from Georgia History online at @Logue including one on LaGrange's All Female Militia who won a Civil War Battle without firing a shot.
