About North Georgia, Spring, 2013
About North Georgia

Georgia Renaissance Festival

2013 promises to be a great year for the Georgia Renfest. Attendance has risen over the past few years and many of the best acts are returning again this year. Our favorite is the Birds of Prey show.




Before Chickamauga

Union General William S. Rosecrans and his Army of the Cumberland pursued Confederate General Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee into Northwest Georgia trying to reach the Western and Atlantic Railroad, leading up to the Battle of Chickamauga.



New Hope Church plane crash

On April 4, 1977, during a thunderstorm Southern Airways Flight 242, a DC-9 jet tried to land on 2-lane Georgia 92. 61 people on the aircraft and 7 more on the ground died on impact




Indian Seats Trail

This energetic hike climbs to the top of Sawnee Mountain to an area known as Indian Seats.


For an article appearing in our previous edition, see About North Georgia, Fall, 2011

At the top: The pileated woodpecker, once thought to be extinct in the state of Georgia, claims most of the eastern coast and the Southeast United States as home. In Canada, the bird's range crosses the continent.
