A fellow member of a certain writing site is planning a historical
novel set in Darien, Georgia. She has the dates, facts, names, and so on
that she needs. She is having trouble finding answers to more basic
questions: what did settlers do every day? What was their culture like? They
were often fighting: what was it like to be a soldier in that type of
battle? She wants to _understand_ their lives, but is "either finding [...]
big-picture military facts, or [...] daily life grade school lesson plans
that say 'Colonial life was hard.'"
She would prefer first hand accounts if possible.
Ray, I would start with Georgia Historical Society in Savannah, GA
(www.georgiahistory.com). They house manuscripts. Or, contact Buddy
Sullivan. He's an historian, local to that area, who has written several
books on McIntosh County history.
