    Boundary disputes exist between many states, and some of them are long standing Georgia s boundaries with North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, and Tennessee are all included in this volume The boundaries with the Mississippi Territory before Alabama was formed and with parts of the current United States owned by countries such as France and Spain in the colonial period are treated as well Since the book was written, Georgia tried to reassert a claim to a strip about one mile wide which would give them access to the Tennessee River So far the land remains part of Tennessee While it was an interesting read, it lacks the depth of treatment some volumes of this nature provide.The volume appeals to the layman than the historian or geographer.

    Interesting book It is amazing that just 200 years before my father was born, Georgia was being settled by the English.
