summary

Old Petersburg and the Broad River Valley of Georgia details colonial life at Petersburg, Georgia, at the junction of Broad and Savannah Rivers. A town that grew, flourished, and eventually disappeared, Petersburg was once a valuable and unique outlet for river trade. This volume highlights various aspects of this river town, including its founding, politics, businesses, and religious practices.
