THIS volume will bring the History of Georgia up to the commencement of the revolutionary war, and the author is now employed in collecting materials for the second, which will embrace that interesting period. He earnestly invites the correspondence of those gentlemen, who participated in the glorious struggle which gave freedom and independence to the United States; and solicits copious communications, containing the dates of battles and skirmishes, the names of the officers and number of troops on each side, a description of the ground, the number killed, wounded and taken prisoners.
No state in the union suffered more than Georgia—none made greater struggles none had such difficulties to encounter, and none has been so little noticed in the general history of the war. Every reader is capable of contributing his mite, and the most unpolished narrative of interesting facts, will be thankfully received.
Savannah, Nov. 1811.
