The Atlanta metropolis is one of America’s most modern and progressive cities, and it is easy to forget that 150 years ago it was the scene of a long and deadly campaign. Union general William T. Sherman hammered relentlessly against Atlanta at Kennesaw Mountain, Peachtree Creek, Ezra Church and Jonesboro. Months later, as he began his infamous March to the Sea, much of Atlanta was destroyed by fire. Thousands died in the fighting, and thousands more succumbed to wounds and disease in the large hospitals constructed around the city. Today, the ghosts of Atlanta’s Civil War actions haunt battlefields, hospital sites, cemeteries, homes and commercial structures, all a testament to the tragic history of the city. Join author Jim Miles as he details the Civil War spirits that still haunt Atlanta.



Neat Pieces: The Plain-Style Furniture of Nineteenth-Century Georgia

$40.95 - $32.76

(as of Sep 08,2018 18:15:44 UTC – Details)


Neat Pieces is a detailed, extensively illustrated survey of the major forms and makers of the “plain style” of furniture made and used by Georgians in the 1800s. Simply designed, solidly constructed of local woods, and usually unadorned, such pieces were used daily by their owners for storage, sleeping, eating, and more. Today, this furniture is read by historians, folklorists, and other experts for clues into a past way of life. It is also prized by museums, antiques dealers and auction houses, and furniture appraisers, collectors, and makers.

Neat Pieces first appeared as the companion volume to the Atlanta History Center’s seminal 1983 exhibit of the same name. The exhibit featured 126 exemplary pieces of furniture, including chairs, tables, huntboards, washstands, and candlestands. Each of them is described and illustrated in this book. Photographs in the original edition of Neat Pieces were black-and-white; here they are color. A new foreword by Deanne Levison looks at related publications and exhibits of the subsequent two decades. The introduction, by William W. Griffin, provides information on furniture forms, nomenclature, and finishes. Also included in the book is a list of more than twelve hundred nineteenth-century Georgia furniture craftsmen, with key details of their lives and work.

Long before it came to prominence as the model city
of the New South, as well as earning the title “the
new Motown,” Atlanta was a hotbed of entertainment,
business, and civic life for African Americans. At the same time that Harlem was undergoing its acclaimed renaissance, Atlanta could boast of excellent colleges, a thriving social environment, and an entertainment scene that could rival those of much larger cities. From Auburn Avenue, the hub of the city’s African-American activity, a spirit of vibrant change and excitement radiated out to reach people across America.
