"Come and Take It!" November 21 and 22

These famous words "Come and take it!" were defiantly said to the British back on November 25, 1778, by American Col. John McIntosh. The British withdrew only to return 45 days later when Fort Morris fell.

The weekend of November 21-22 will take park visitors back to the times of the American Revolution. On November 21, Rita Elliott, will discuss findings of her archaelogical study. November 22 will be an encampment complete with colonial demonstrations and a skirmish.

To learn more about Georgia's history and the importance of Fort Morris during the American Revolution and the War of 1812, be sure to visit the park outside of Midway. For more information, call 912-884-5999.
