WWI aviator from Hall had some close calls
Placeholder Image
One of the first military aviators from Hall County who fought in World War I had some narrow escapes in the air, but luckily returned with hardly a scratch. He was Lt. B.G. Barnwell, who had grown up near Antioch Campground. Barnwell had joined what was then called the naval aerial service, later the Marine Aviation Corps, shortly after America entered the war against Germany.
