From the Publisher:
This is a true story of how Georgians have really lived for the last 260 years – and honest look filled with fascinating details and some arresting conclusions. The history of Georgia is the story of the failure of an ideal that James Oglethorpe, Georgia’s founder, called “the Agrarian Equality” – his hope that settlers could find their happy independence, with respect and fairness among themselves. This bittersweet history is illustrated with some 175 drawings, prints, antique photographs and new view of historic places.
All Americans can learn from the troubled history of Georgia and the South. As each American must face the reality of insoluble national problems and our diminished role in world affairs, we can find consolation and wisdom in the rich history of a region that has already had to accept disasters and disappointments. Indeed, the real nobility of human experience is found in struggle against overwhelming odds and even in failure. Armed with such wisdom, we might strengthen our resolve to do our best and learn to forgive ourselves and others for our imperfections and mistakes.
