Operating since 2006, this blog is a treasure trove of information about the great state of Georgia and her rich and interesting history. Be prepared to invest a pretty good amount of time - the subject material is fascinating and Lisa Cooper, the blog's owner and operator, is an outstanding writer.
Here are a few of my favorite posts:
- Georgia's Paul Revere
- Button Gwinnett's Early Death
- Little Five Points and the 1906 Atlanta Race Riots
There are many other wonderful posts as well. Take a few minutes and possibly learn a few new things about Georgia's geography, history, and people.
My next print column from About Covington to Madison should be out near the first of October. I'm very excited about that one, and I hope you will too. In the meantime, I'm planning on rolling out a couple of online-only posts here over the next few weeks.
Also, I've had a few folks ask me why I've never allowed comments on the Chronicles. Mainly, it was because I didn't want to deal with spam comments, but I understand that blogger does a pretty good job of keeping those out. As of a few days ago, comments are open. So...comment, if you feel so inclined.
Until next time.
