The Georgia Archives Lunch and Learn Seminar July 13 will feature historian Anne Amerson of Dahlonega. Amerson will speak on “When the Twenty-Niners Came Down to Georgia and Started the Nation’s First Major Gold Rush.”
She will cover the 1829 gold rush and its impact on Georgia, and its impact on Georgia, and how it led to the Cherokees’ Trail of Tears and the settlement of North Georgia. The speaker is an authority on North Georgia history and the author of “Dahlonega’s Gold,” among other works.
The event is free; bring your own lunch. It will be at noon at the Georgia Archives.
