"Thar's gold in them thar hills" Gold and gold mining in Georgia, 1830s-1940s ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thar's Gold in Them Thar Hills": Gold and Gold Mining in Georgia, 1830s-1940s consists of selected legal, financial, and promotional documents as well as photographs and picture postcards that represent episodes of renewed interest in gold mining in Lumpkin County during Reconstruction, at the turn of the century, and during the Depression. Culled from three archival collections at the Lumpkin County Library of the Chestatee Regional Library System, the selected textual materials cover the late 1830s through the early 1940s, but focus primarily on the period between Reconstruction and the turn of the twentieth century. By contrast, the photographs and postcards depict mining methods employed from the 1900s through the 1940s along the Chestatee River, at the Findley Mill, and at the Lockhart Mine. Correspondence to Dahlonega attorney Weir Boyd documents the activities of the Rider Mine (1868-1883), the Yahoola and Cane Creek Hydraulic Mining Company (1868-1883), the Consolidated Mines (1879-1882), and the Phoenix Gold Mining company (1891-1892). In-depth descriptions of mining operations and techniques are found within the prospectuses of the Dahlonega Consolidated Gold Mining Company, the Dahlonega Gold Mining and Milling Company, and the Findley Gold Mining Company of Georgia. In addition, Memoranda of deposit from 1838 to 1905 document the Branch Mints in Dahlonega and Charlotte (N.C.). As these materials focus on the period after the Civil War, there is scant mention of area Native Americans, or the Cherokee Removal ("Trail of Tears"). The site also includes an essay about Georgia gold history, a bibliography, and lists of selected websites and related archival materials

The regiment took part in skirmishes at Sewell Mountain, Laurel Hill, and Whitemarsh Island. While traveling, Jenkins also remarks on the changing scenery he encounters.
