Remember the Tax on Tea by the British? Well, the North Taxed the South! #georgiapioneers #genealogy


Remember the Tax on Tea by the British? Well, the North Taxed the South!

cottonWhen the economy is low and times are hard, people make adjustments to the situation. It behooves the genealogist to consider the economic picture of the past while researching. For many years the driving force beyond immigration was the acquisition of good, fertile land. Because land fed families and communities. The Southern States provided staples such as cotton to Northern manufacturers. But when tariffs were imposed upon their shipments, it created a hardship. There were many letters written by State officials concerning the imposition of the tariffs, but the north refused to relent. This is how the War Between the States began. When we perform our research, do we include a search of official state papers? Yes, state correspondence is boring, but sometimes useful in its information.  Names of Carroll Co. GA Ancestors
