GENERATION 4 ~ THE ANTEBELLUM ERA
Antebellum is a term used to describe a period of time occurring or existing before a particular war. In this case, the Civil War. The Antebellum Era 1800-1860, in Georgia's history was fraught with drama and conflicts over issues of slavery, land fraud, the gold rush, the railroad, the Cherokees' forced exile known as the 'Trail of Tears, population growth and political discontent.
These are the issues faced by the Fourth Generation of my Georgia ancestors.
