The Columbus, GA newspaper -- May 20, 1836
General Orders from the Headquarters at Milledgeville, Ga. invites
Georgians to form into volunteer companies to be provisioned and supplied
by the state, to guard the banks of the Chattahoochee River from incursions
of the Creeks.
Signed by Bolling H. Robinson, Aide-de-Camp

Also in the June 9th, June 16th, and June 23rd issues of the Columbus paper
are General Orders from many officers, reports of skirmishes with the
Indians. We have not had a chance to transcribe these pages as of yet.

Heard Co. had nearly all of its records destroyed by fire in the 1890's,
and we feel very lucky that the papers and records of the surrounding
counties have survived to help us piece together any information, such as
the list above, to help reconstruct the early records on Heard Co.
