Excerpt from Advantages of Georgia for Those Desiring Homes in a More Genial Climate
During the spanish-american war Georgia furnished more volunteers in propor tion to population than any other State.
Thus at every period of American history? Georgia has taken a conspicuous stand. Her Crawfords, Berrien, Stephens, Toombs, Cobbs, Benjamin H. Hill and Henry Grady were among the greatest orators of America and no grander pulpit orator than George F. Pierce can be named in the roll of America's great preachers. Sidney Lanier also ranks high among American poets.
Great on these lines, Georgia is also one of the most progressive among our States. In the later thirties on account of her rapid growth in manufactures and her' wisdom and zeal in railroad construction, Georgia received the proud title Empire State of the South.
