Abstract:

This is a comprehensive history of the Georgia Militia from the end of the Revolution in 1783 to Secession in 1861, along with transitional information on the Colonial, Revolutionary, and Confederate eras. Includes detailed descriptions of the Militia's service during the Oconee Wars, the Embargo Wars, the War of 1812, the First and Second Seminole Wars, the Creek War of 1836, the Cherokee Removal, and the Mexican War. Special emphasis is placed on biographies of ante-bellum Georgians not readily available elsewhere. Other highlights describe participation by Indians, Englishmen, Scots, Frenchmen, Germans, Irishmen, Jews, Greeks, and Negroes in the Georgia Militia; the role of physicians and ministers of the Gospel as combat commanders; and Georgia's participation in campaigns in Florida and Alabama. -- Publisher's website.
