Abstract:

This collection consists of the three-volume map collection, correspondence, notes, and notebooks. The volumes contain photocopies of maps collected by the Warings, the result of their research on maps of Savannah, Georgia. The first two volumes were presented to the Georgia Historical Society on October 5, 1970; the third volume, completed by Elizabeth Waring after her husband's death, was given to the society in 1974. The three volumes contain maps spanning Savannah's history from 1720 until 1897. The first two volumes are titled "Savannah and Its Environs." Volume I, 1733-1770, covers most of Savannah's colonial period: 1733-1752 under the Georgia Trustees, and 1752-1782 under the royal governors. The second volume, 1773-1897, continues with two maps from the colonial period through Georgia's "first century of freedom from British rule." Neither of the first two volumes contain military maps, as this was the focus of the third volume. Volume III continues the title and purpose of the first two volumes, coving years 1733-1903, but also contains "Defenses, 1720-1812." This portion of the third volume focuses on the eighteenth and nineteenth century defenses of Savannah, giving particular attention to Fort Halifax and to the Trustees Garden area "with particular emphasis on its military role and significance." The maps in these volumes were (mostly) arranged chronologically, and the source of each map is noted. The volumes also contain a narrative of "items of special interest and importance" regarding Savannah's history. The remainder of the collection consists of correspondence pertaining to the copies of early maps of Savannah and its vicinity, including defenses. Sources of information include: the Smithsonian Institution, Library of Congress, National Archives, Public Record Office in London, British Museum, University of Michigan Library, Boston Public Library, and Library of Harvard University. The correspondence is arranged chronologically. Also included in the papers are notes and two notebooks detailing sites and the construction of early coastal Georgia forts. The notes include: information on Fort Wayne, Fort Argyle, Liberty Island (Dutch Island), Cockspur, Fort George, Fort Prevost, Fort King George, Old Fort Point; excerpts from the journal of the Earl of Egmont; excerpts from the Commons House of Assembly in 1757; copies of Sir James Wright's letters regarding fort construction; information on doing research in the National Archives and their collection; and a newspaper clipping on an ocean flight in 1913.
