Inhaltsangabe: Located in Central Georgia, the city of Milledgeville teems with history. As if being the capital of Georgia for sixty-five years, including during the Civil War, the quiet city also serves as the backdrop for the personal stories of each of its nearly 20,000 residents. In More Milledgeville Memories, popular historian Hugh Harrington delves into nearly thirty such tales highlighting the Georgian city's fascinating past.
In vivid detail, he explores the story of the Three-Eyed Man, a monstrosity studied by "noted physicians" who set the town abuzz in the nineteenth century, as well as the tale of Thomas Johnson, who astounded the local community by marrying six to eight women over the course of a lifetime. And of course, no one can forget William Choice, one of Atlanta's greatest actors in the 1850s. Who would have thought that Choice would escape the death penalty, for murder, simply by using his magnificent theatrical skills?
Hugh Harrington, author of the successful Remembering Milledgeville and Civil War Milledgeville, revives his special flair for presenting a history that is not only fascinating to historians and Milledgeville residents, but will also be popular with anyone that simply enjoys a good story about drunken duels, axe murders and other little known or forgotten incidents and people
