about

Published in 1966, this documentary history examines the history of Georgia from the first appearance of Spanish explorers to the hardships of the Civil War and Reconstruction. Through the accounts of those who experienced the events firsthand, Spencer Bidwell King Jr. allows the reader to experience colonialism, Revolution, and statehood. Within these distinctive eras, King discusses society, education, religion, literature, and the economic and cultural pursuits of the people. He combines extensive quotes from primary sources with historical information to create a continuous narrative. By using the voices of Georgians, King reveals the state's unique character and individuality.
Spencer Bidwell King Jr. (1904-1977) was a professor of history and chairman of the history department at Mercer University. He was editor of Rebel Lawyer: The Letters of Theodorick W. Montfort, 1861-1862 and Ebb Tide: As Seen through the Diary of Josephine Clay Habersham, 1863 (both Georgia).
