New Georgia Encyclopedia

There wasn’t much on t.v. over the holidays. Christmas Eve, I watched all of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” one of my favorite movies, but one I rarely watch from start to end, and sadder still, I watched two reruns of the National Spelling Bee on Christmas night. In addition, over the holidays, I caught up on some of my dvr-ed (sp?) shows, including multiple episodes of the Civil War Journal. (I have a History Channel problem.) One of them was about Sherman’s March and had some interesting photographs of Atlanta, c. 1860’s. Curious, I went online to see if I could find any more – seems that The Atlanta History Center has a collection of them, but it is not online.

In the course of my search, though, I came across another interesting site: The New Georgia Encyclopedia. Pretty interesting stuff on Atlanta and the entire state of Georgia. Also a great way to waste some time, especially if you don’t have much work to do at your office because everyone else took the week between Christmas and New Year’s off.

    Wasn’t Jimmy Stewart’s company all about building skeezy suburbs that would destroy the town anyway?
