A History of Temple, Georgia by Burell Williams Holder,Ruth Roberts Holder

By Burell Williams Holder,Ruth Roberts Holder

This publication provides the wealthy and colourful historical past of a city that constructed within the overdue 1800's--frontier days endlessly replaced with the arrival of the railroad and the crowning of King Cotton. It used to be a time whilst early settlers battled the weather, Buckhorn Tavern used to be a hectic stagecoach cease, and the perennial conflict of excellent and evil was once witnessed in a shoot-out among the infamous horse-thieving Pony membership and their nemesis, a vigilante team referred to as The Slicks. In time, perseverance triumphed over adversity, and sincere trade created a bustling marketplace position. regardless of its small dimension, the city proved rather revolutionary, with many inventions and private accomplishments between its voters; in truth, town boasts many “firsts” and “famous.” even though confronted with many demanding situations over the years, Temple persists and keeps to earn its position in history.
