This Day in Georgia History: July 15th

GeorgiaInfo is a marvelous resource for the Georgia history buff. With tons of information, be prepared to spend a good bit of time on this site.

One of my favorite features of this page is "This Day in Georgia History."

Here's a few for today, July 15th:

Sherman crossing the Chattahoochee River (1864)

Bobby Jones wins his first major title (1923) 

James Ogelthorpe gives chase to the Spanish (1742) 

On the main page here at the Chronicles, we also have a link to another similar site hosted by the The Georgia Historical Society and Georgia Public Broadcasting entitled, "Today in Georgia History." Personally, I like the GeorgiaInfo one better.

Good stuff.

Things have been kind of light lately - vacation and busy with life, but we've got some stuff coming down the pike: another write-up from contributing writer Ellis Millsaps and some local C-town news and politics. So stay tuned...
