Elberton, GA – December 5, 2009


As you drive along the borders between Northwestern South Carolina and Northeastern Georgia, you will begin to notice place-names that look as if they were torn directly from some of the better-written history books of the Revolutionary War (Andersen, Hartwell County, Elberton).
