  • Description
These nine essays originally appeared in the Georgia Historical Quarterly and range in subject from a group of Arcadians expelled from Nova Scotia that settled in colonial Georgia to the origins of the University of Georgia. Other essays examine the Woolfolk murder case that attracted national attention; Henry M. Turner, a black legislator during the Reconstruction; and John Howard Payne, the author of "Home, Sweet Home."
