This true never-before-told story is about the four year expedition to survey the southern boundary separating the young U.S. from Spain after the end of the Revolutionary War. Andrew Ellicott, the brilliant astronomer-surveyor had to deal with the duplicitous Spanish, hostile Indians, counter-spies and living in swamps and dense forests.
Georgia’s boundaries are more than mere lines on a map. They reflect centuries of wars and treaties, political maneuvering and litigation, heroic actions and human error. From the arrival of Europeans in the New World through legislative resolutions in 2008, this book recounts the landmarks, events and people that have shaped present-day Georgia.
