This is the true story of how Georgians, white and black, have really lived for the last 275 years–Loyalists and revolutionaries in the colony, Indians and settlers in the frontier, masters and slaves on plantations, soldiers and civilians during the Civil War, farmers and businessmen in recent decades. This honest look is filled with fascinating details, some 170 illustrations and some arresting conclusions. All Americans, as they face what seem insoluble national problems and our diminished role in world affairs, can find consolation and wisdom in the history of a region that has already had to accept disasters and disappointments.
