Description

This large map (62 x 53 inches) delineates counties, roads, railroads, and factories. It lists governors and their terms of office. Illustrations feature public buildings, colleges, and scenic points such as Toccoa Falls. The land lots, apparently for the original counties of Irwin and Appling, are shown in the area between the Altamaha River and the Florida boundary. W. T. Sherman allegedly used this map to plan his “March to the Sea.”
