Scottish Highlanders in Colonial Georgia: The Recruitment, Emigration, and Settlement at Darien, 1735-1748, Anthony W. Parker


6 Scottish Highlanders in Colonial Georgia: The Recruitment, Emigration, and Settlement at Darien, 1735-1748
Anthony W. Parker
200 pages, 6 x 9, paperback / softcover, University of Georgia Press
Between 1735 and 1748 hundreds of young men and their families emigrated from the Scottish Highlands to the Georgia coast to settle and protect the new British colony. The trustees of the colony and military governor James Oglethorpe wanted settlers who were accustomed to hardship, militant in nature, and willing to become frontier farmer-soldiers. In this respect, the Highlanders fit the bill perfectly through training and tradition.
In Scottish Highlanders in Colonial Georgia, Anthony W. Parker explains what factors motivated the Highlanders to leave their native glens of Scotland for the pine barrens of Georgia. He considers how their cultural distinctiveness and "old world" experience prepared the Scots to play a vital role in the survival of Georgia in this early and precarious moment in its history.

About Author
Anthony W. Parker is a lecturer in the School of American Studies and the Department of Modern History at the University of Dundee in Dundee, Scotland.

Reviews
"A useful addition to our store of knowledge of Highlanders in eighteenth-century America." —Journal of American History

"Very well written and informative . . . Parker succeeds in establishing the importance of the Highland Scots at Darien in relation to their impact on other colonies, as well as the state of Georgia's history." —Journal of Southern History

"Anthony Parker's study of Scottish Highlanders in Georgia fills a gap in Georgia history. Parker gives a complete account of their background in Scotland and their adventures in Georgia. He writes in a clear, straightforward style that carries the reader through the complexities of life in the Highlands." —Edward J. Cashin, author of Governor Henry Ellis and the Transformation of British North America

7 CD: The Dead Towns of Georgia
Charles C. Jones
(1878), 2006, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, PC and Mac, 263 pp, Heritage Books
This interesting work provides histories of numerous towns that were established in Georgia, flourished for a time, and then passed into oblivion. Among the major subjects are the towns of Old Ebenezer (1733) on the Savannah River, Frederica (1735) on St. Simon's Island, Abercorn (1733) on a tributary of the Savannah, Sunbury (1758) on the Medway River, and Hardwick (1755) on the Ogeechee River. Also mentioned are Petersburg, Jacksonborough, Francisville, and many other communities. Emphasis is placed on the colonial period. The role of these towns in the conflict with the Spanish from Florida, and later with the British during the American Revolution, is discussed. The first settlers in Old Ebenezer and Frederica were Saltzburgers from Germany, while the founders of Sunsbury were New England Puritans from Dorchester, Roxbury, and Milton, Massachusetts who had left there in 1697 with their pastor, Rev. Joseph Lord. These Puritans settled in Dorchester, South Carolina where they sojourned for about fifty years before removing to Georgia. Many early residents are named in the historical text and there is an extensive list of the proprietors of Sunbury, as well as maps of several of the communities. The book is well documented with numerous explanatory footnotes and citations to sources. A fullname plus subject index augments this work.

10 Company C of the Twenty-Second Georgia Infantry Regiment in the Confederate Service
Dorothy Holland Herring
2000, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 336 pp, Heritage Books
This is meant to be a history of one company from rural Georgia, composed of ordinary men, probably representative of most companies in the Army of Northern Virginia. It was impossible to separate the company from the regiment and to seperate the regiment from the brigade, so this is to a certain degree a history of the Blanchard-Wright-Sorrel Brigade.

11 CD: Journal of a Residence on a Georgia Plantation in 1838-1839
Frances Anne Kemble
(1863), 2005, CD, Graphic Images, Adobe Acrobat, v6, PC and Mac, 338 pp, Heritage Books
Frances Kemble, a young Englishwoman, writes in a series of letters of her experiences as a guest on two Georgian plantations where she witnesses first hand the reality of life for slaveholders, overseers and the slaves themselves. While acknowledging that not all slaveholders are evil and cruel, she emphasizes the evil and cruelty of a slaveholding society. She defends Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin as a truthful depiction of the society that she witnesses firsthand during her months in the South. Her letters depict her personal experiences and her reactions to the events unfolding around her.

12 The Georgia Dutch: From the Rhine and Danube to the Savannah, 1733-1783
George Fenwick Jones
384 pages, 6 x 9, 24 photos, cloth, University of Georgia Press
This is the first comprehensive history of the German-speaking settlers who emigrated to the Georgia colony from Germany, Alsace, Switzerland, Austria, and adjacent regions. Known collectively as the Georgia Dutch, they were the colony's most enterprising early settlers, and they played a vital role in gaining Britain's toehold in a territory also coveted by Spain and France.
The main body of the book is a chronological account of the Georgia Dutch from their earliest arrival in 1733 to their dispersal and absorption into what was, by 1783, an Anglo-American populace. Underscoring the harsh daily life of the common settler, George Fenwick Jones also highlights noteworthy individuals and events. He traces recurrent themes, including tensions between the realities of the settlers' lives and the aspirations and motivations of the colony's trustees and supporters; the web of relations between German- and English-speaking whites, African Americans, and Native Americans; and early signs of the genesis of a distinctly new and American sensibility.
Three summary chapters conclude The Georgia Dutch. Merging new material with information from previous chapters, Jones offers the most complete depiction to date of Georgia Dutch culture and society. Included are discussions of religion; health and medicine; education; welfare and charity; industry, agriculture, trade, and commerce; Native-American affairs; slavery; domestic life and customs; the arts; and military and legal concerns.
Based on twenty-five years of research with primary documents in Europe and the United States, The Georgia Dutch is a welcome reappraisal of an ethnic group whose role in colonial history has, over time, been unfairly minimized.

13 Benning's Brigade: Volume 1, A History and Roster of the Fifteenth Georgia
J. David Dameron
(1997), 2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 232 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A history and roster of the individual regiments which comprised the unit. First and primarily, the book is intended to accurately reflect the composition, strength, and disposition of the brigade, chronologically, throughout the Civil War, from its inception to its ultimate demobilization. Secondly, the narrative is filled with excerpts from diaries, journals, correspondence, and reports from the officers and men that wrote them. These personal reflections are intended to provide the reader with an intimate and uniquely southern perspective of the American Civil War. A detailed analysis of the brigade at the regimental and company level provides an accurate graphic and historical representation, and the roster of the regiment highlights each soldier individually.

General Henry Lewis Benning: "This was a man," A Biography of Georgia's Supreme Court Justice and Confederate General, J. David Dameron


14 General Henry Lewis Benning: "This was a man," A Biography of Georgia's Supreme Court Justice and Confederate General
J. David Dameron
(2001, 2002), 2008, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 464 pp, Heritage Books
Henry L. Benning is justly included in Northern's Men of Mark in Georgia yet, little is known of this remarkable man. Why was a federal military installation named after him? Why did his former slaves openly adore and respect him? What did he do to deserve such admiration from such a diverse multitude of people? This story answers these questions and also explores political affairs, court cases and societal issues such as slavery and religion. In the courtroom and on the field of battle, Henry Benning fought diligently for his beliefs. During the epic struggle for Southern independence, General "Old Rock" Benning's men proudly followed him into the mortal hell of battle, repeatedly and with great distinction. Benning's brigade contributed to Confederate victories in both eastern and western theaters. While Benning excelled as a military leader, his skills in the arena of law are legendary as well. Prior to the war, he served his home state of Georgia as a Solicitor General of the Chattahoochee circuit and as Justice of the Supreme Court. After the war, he returned to practice law in his hometown of Columbus, Georgia until his untimely death in 1875.

15 Benning’s Brigade: Volume 2, A History and Roster of the Second, Seventeenth, and Twentieth Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiments
J. David Dameron, Jr
2005, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 494 pp, Heritage Books
General Henry Lewis Benning described his brigade of Southern warriors as men who would simply not give up, even in the face of overwhelming odds. Comprised of the Second, Fifteenth (covered in Volume 1), Seventeenth, and Twentieth infantry regiments, Benning's Brigade consisted entirely of Georgia volunteers. These men represented the lifeblood of Georgia and they were determined to defend her sovereignty. These proud men defended Virginia soil while their own homes were being ravished by Sherman's "March to the Sea." The mental anguish endured by the Georgian soldiers during the winter of 1864-1865 is painfully evident in their letters and journals. First and primarily, the book is intended to accurately reflect the composition, strength, and disposition of the brigade, chronologically, throughout the Civil War, from its inception to its ultimate demobilization. Secondly, the narrative is filled with excerpts from diaries, journals, correspondence, and reports from the officers and men that wrote them. These personal reflections are intended to provide the reader with an intimate and uniquely southern perspective of the American Civil War. The regimental rosters in this book highlight each individual soldier. Personal information such as: rank; promotions; prisoner/exchange data (if captured); wounds or disabilities (hospitalization data); and either their cause of death and burial data; or parole information was gleaned from both Union and Confederate documents. Numerous vintage photographs, maps, charts, a bibliography, and an index augment the text. Anyone interested in the Civil War, Southern history, or Georgia history will want to add this volume to their library.

The Hell-Hole in Georgia: Sherman vs. Johnston May 22 - June 2, 1864, Jeffrey S. Dean


19 The Hell-Hole in Georgia: Sherman vs. Johnston May 22 - June 2, 1864
Jeffrey S. Dean
2006, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 144 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
May 21, 1864—two weeks have elapsed since the Atlanta Campaign began. It has been an operation of surprise and maneuver, of exhaustion and hunger, and of ceaseless combat. Now, fifty miles closer to the crucial city of Atlanta, the two armies confront each other again in the Allatoona Mountains. General Joseph E. Johnston’s Confederate army has occupied a strong defensive line protected by the Etowah River. As he has done before, General W. T. Sherman avoids a head-on conflict and plunges his Union army into a Georgia “wilderness.” He hopes to flank the Confederates with his whole army, cut their supply line, and bring the struggle to a victorious end. When the Union army crosses the Etowah River, the fourth cycle in the Atlanta Campaign begins. In three major battles (New Hope Church, Pickett’s Mill and Dallas), the two sides will viciously attack and defend, attempting to achieve the ultimate victory. Few open areas afford a view of the opponents; many die and are never found in the dense thickets. No grand assaults, no massed artillery bombardments occur here, yet, to most of the combatants, it is remembered as the most desperate fighting of the entire war—a veritable “Hell-Hole.” Seven maps, an “Order of Battle” that reflects the current units and commanders, abundant endnotes, and an index to names, places and subjects add to the value of this work.

Linda L. Green
(2003), 2005, 8˝x11, paper, index, 228 pp, Heritage Books
Often times when an individual was missed on the regular U.S. Census, he would appear on this agricultural census. So you might try checking this census for your missing relatives. Unfortunately, many of the Agricultural Census records have not survived, but some have remained and they yield unique information about how people lived. There are 48 columns of information, six of which are transcribed here: name of the owner, improved acreage, unimproved acreage, cash value of the farm, value of farm implements and machinery, and value of livestock.
