I found a free book written by a native of Liberty County on the website, "Documenting the American South." The long title for the book is:

"The Anderson Surpriser. Written After He Was Seventy-Five Years of Age. The Author Was Born in Liberty County, Ga., on the 22d Day of February, in the Year of Our Lord, 1819, and United with the Methodist Episcopal Church in the Year 1839. This Book Contains an Account of His Florida and Northern Trip, Written by Himself, Giving Much Valuable Information of the People Among Whom He Had Been Several Months."

I thought someone might find this bit of history interesting.

Sickened by Westboro Baptist
August 06, 2013
Like everyone else I am sickened by the evils perpetrated by Westboro Baptist. Yet, as Christians we must try to learn from everything. Looking at Westboro, we ask, what can hate do to our minds and faith? http://forthright.net/2013/08/06/bad-example/
