Georgia during the Civil War #georgiapioneerscom #gagenealogy

Georgia during the Civil War

Plantation home of Davis Smith in Monroe County.  He was distinctively known as a planter and gentleman
For those who viewed and loved GWTW, I am with you there.  However, the elegant homes and plantations depicted were laughable.  Alabama and Mississippi had the elegant mansions! For one thing, Georgia was formed as a religious colony and most of its settlers were poor and came from the streets of London.  It was not until 1752, when the King assumed control of its charter, that people were allowed to bring their slaves south from the New England States and Virginia into Georgia.  Even so, the typical manor was nothing glamorous, just an old farm house.  Many of these home were still standing during my childhood.     Trace your Georgia Ancestors
