?History is the knowledge of past events and especially those of human affairs.? With these words Milledgeville resident and local historian Hugh Harrington brings to life the characters and events that are the essential ingredients of Milledgeville?s important and often colorful past. In Remembering Milledgeville: Historic Tales from Georgia?s Antebellum Capital, Hugh recounts events such as a mysterious rooster rip-off and the spectacular sunset that was caused by a volcano over three thousand miles away. Through earthquakes and tornadoes, Milledgeville and Baldwin County have been host to famous personalities like Ty Cobb and President William McKinley. Even more intriguing are the stories of scoundrels, duels and murders throughout the old capital?s history, which until now have been forgotten. With an eye for history and the unusual, Hugh leads visitor and local alike through the fascinating and often bizarre stories of this quintessential southern town. Whether it is the battle for a bridge, the loss of life and limb by cannon fire or the efforts of the community to fight a fire and save the old state house, readers will not want to stop turning the pages of this sure-to-be classic.
