Protecting Georgia During the War of 1812

St. Mary's HarborDuring the War of 1812 the port of St. Mary's was subject to attack by the British. Granted, most of the action of this war included battles with the Indians in West Georgia and Alabama. Nevertheless, the ports required protecting, even the tiny port town of Sunbury in Liberty County. However, people from other States came down to Georgia to join this war because it offered 487-1/2 acres of land if the soldier served five years. If your ancestor received a land grant in Appling County, this is the reason.  See Names of Appling Co. GA Ancestors
