(pg 91 - 96) CHATHAM COUNTIANS PROTEST THE YAZOO LAND FRAUD


In January 1795, a corrupt Georgia government passed a bill to sell Georgia's claim to the lands of what is now Alabama and Mississippi
for pennies on the acre. Angry citizens signed petitions protesting what came to known as the "Yazoo Land Fraud." The new governor could not
reverse the sales. The petitions protesting the Yazoo Land Fraud survive and are substitutes for Georgia's lost 1790 and 1800 censuses.
Petitions can be found in the Telamon Cuyler Collection of the Hargrett Rare Books and Manuscripts Library at University of Georgia Libraries.
