Images of America: Milledgeville is a study into Milledgeville's past events as they directly defined and shaped the future of the city. Milledgeville has been greatly impacted by the founding of what is now Georgia College & State University and Georgia Military College, as well as by notable persons like great American writer Flannery O'Connor, distinguished chemist Charles Holmes Herty, and Congressman Carl Vinson. The city also has less flattering history, including the removal of the Creek Indians to acquire land and the Georgia Lunatic Asylum, which inspired the phrase "Gone to Milledgeville" to suggest a person had gone crazy. This compilation of images traces the history of Milledgeville from its founding in 1804 and declaration as the new capital of Georgia through more than 100 years of development and transition.
