History Center to demonstrate life in 18th century
Placeholder Image

Independence of the American colonies from England came in fits and starts for Georgia from 1775 and 1783.

The Revolutionary experience in Georgia and the Southern back-country was far different than the traditional American narrative. The Northeast Georgia History Center plans to explore those constantly changing fortunes and the division that occurred among its people during its monthly Family Day.

The event will be from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14. The cost is free.

Visitors will glimpse the reality of life during wartime for Georgians and the South in general through museum theater performances, hands-on activities, living history interpretation and demonstrations of 18th century military arms.
