BRAG meeting to focus on Bartram’s travels

The Blue Ridge Archaeology Guild will meet Thursday, October 23, at 7 p.m., at the United Community Bank Building on Morrison Moore Parkway, Dahlonega. Cliff Shaw will present a program titled “William Bartram and the Search for his Great Buffalo Lick in Oglethorpe County.” Joining him will be Tom Gresham from Historic Oglethorpe County to discuss his search for Cherokee Corner, another important landmark in Oglethorpe County visited by William Bartram in 1773. The Great Buffalo Lick and Cherokee Corner were important survey points for a huge track of land the Colony of Georgia acquired from the Cherokee and Creek Indians Indians in 1773, but their exact location on the ground was lost from memory during the early 1800s.
