Book Description

Oct. 1 2009
Georgia's boundaries are more than mere lines on a map. They reflect centuries of wars and treaties, political maneuvering and litigation, heroic actions and human error. From the arrival of Europeans in the New World through legislative resolutions in 2008, this book recounts the landmarks, events and people that have shaped present-day Georgia. "Dr. Morton has written a well-researched account of the development of the colony and state of Georgia with particular focus on how its boundaries were determined and measured. His attention to detail provides hitherto little-known facts presented in a straightforward manner. This book will be useful to scholars as well as lay readers interested in what could be a mundane topic, brought to life with personalities and anecdotes. He also discusses the legal activity involving Georgia's boundaries for the past two centuries, including the recent brouhaha with Tennessee prompted by the drought. I highly recommend this informative and enjoyable book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Georgia History Jan. 18 2011
By Greg - Published on
I am a real estate attorney who deals with surveys a great deal. I enjoyed this history of the state and it's boundary lines. I have studied the origins of Georgia, west and south Georgia especially, but this book had details that were new to me. It's obviously very thoroughly researched and sheds light on current problems plaguing the state.

A good read for history buffs. Well researched and of interest to anyone from Georgia, South Carolina or Tennessee. I found the book of interest after studying genealogy about my Southern roots.
