The Civil War Sesquicentennial encourages a new look at Southern history: this well-researched historical novel traces a non-planter family as it becomes one of the first here--even before there was Terminus/Marthasville/Atlanta, when it was actually DeKalb County. Find out some surprising forces that moved people here in the 1820s--more to d...o with abolitionism and the desire to escape slavery than was previously thought--and that play a key role in the run-up to the Civil War. Join Author Estelle Ford-Williamson as she discusses this historical novel that throws out the conventional ideas of what went on here in the run-up to the Civil War, and serves as an alternative history to a much more famous book about Atlanta. Nominated for the Townsend Fiction Prize and Georgia Author of the Year and required reading in American History courses in some Georgia universities, Abbeville Farewell will leave you wondering which side you might have chosen on the eve of the Great Destruction.
