Images of America: Elbert County

Published in 2011, this book takes readers on a photographic journey from the humble beginnings of Elbert County to modern-day achievements. Of special interest is the portrait of Nancy Hart and photographs of her monument and cabin. Nancy Hart was a woman ahead of her time: she “spied for the American patriots, killed British soldiers, and possibly participated in combat at Kettle Creek on February 14, 1779” (Davis, 20).
