About the Author: Neely Young is a native of Cedartown, Georgia, a graduate of the University of Georgia and a proud journalist. In 1968, he joined his family-owned newspaper, the Valdosta Daily Times, working in the photography department. After leaving Valdosta, he worked in various positions, and as both editor and publisher, for Georgia newspapers in Valdosta, Marietta, Canton, Dalton and Clayton County. In 1986, he became CEO of Morris Newspaper Corporation, which owned and operated forty newspapers in six states. He has served as a curator on the Georgia Historical Society and often wrote about historical figures in his columns for Georgia Trend magazine. This book is a continuation of his long-standing interest in Georgia history and historical figures.
