Douglasville, the book!


I've written and published a book!
I've been researching and writing the local history of Douglas County for the past four and half years, and I have had a weekly column in the Douglas County Sentinel for a couple of years.
I've been a longtime fan of the Images of America series of books from Arcadia Publishing. Several towns across the nation are included, but my town of Douglasville was missing.
When Arcadia contacted me last year, there was no other alternative than to sign the contract and get busy. The book was released on July 14, 2014, and I'm very proud of it.
The book contains 200 vintage images depicting the history of Douglasville, Georgia....some dating back to the 1870s and covering the next one hundred years.
As far as southern towns go, Douglasville is a bit unique as it IS the quintessential New South town having been birthed in 1875 during Reconstruction.
You can see the Google preview HERE, and you can purchase it via Amazon HERE.
It's also available around town at several locations.  Send me a message at douglascountyhistory@gmail.com if you want the complete list of local vendors.

Also, if you haven't already liked my Facebook page for Douglas County/old Campbell County history, you can find the page HERE.
