Conceived and settled as a colony for aging Union veterans at the end of the 19th century, the town of Fitzgerald holds a unique place in Georgia's history. In deep pine forests warmed by a mild South Georgia climate, opportunity presented itself to P.H. Fitzgerald, an Indanapolis attorney who devised a plan to bring the veterans into what had once been enemy territory. The result is a town that grew and prospered, where men and women from all walks of life and from all parts of the nation live and work together in harmony. Together, they have built homes, businesses, churches, schools, and railroads-all preserved on vintage postcards, photographs, and historical documents highlighted within these pages.
