 Our Books

We Shall Die Together  If you love Georgia history, We Shall Die Together is a must-read.  This book presents 45 stories of Turmoil, Tragedy & Triumph in Georgia through the centuries.  You'll enjoy reading about Georgians who sailed into history on the ill-fated Titanic, those who experienced the horrific freight train derailment and propane tanker explosion that shattered the countryside at a popular picnicking area near Savannah in 1959, and endured the historic hurricane that ravaged Brunswick and the Golden Isles in 1898.  This book is packed with gripping tales of terrible times of bushwackings, massacres, and betrayals, yet also tells uplifting stories of loyalty, honor and perseverance.  

We Shall Die Together is a 6" by 9" softback book of more than 370 pages featuring more than 200 photographs, many never before published in book form.  $24.95
