Reconstruction Period Research Forum
"Vanishing Georgia" photos
Type in keywords such as African American, farms, cotton, slaves, Morgan, Jasper (as in counties), and many rare, vivid images will appear. This project has over 18,000 images of old Georgia in its series. Many ex-slaves are pictured BY NAME during slavery as well as after Emmancipation. Ranging from the 1880's, some African Americans in the 1950's. Old towns that are now long gone are pictured. It was great to see the town's main street where my ancestors lived. Enjoy.
