Carrollton, Georgia: Carroll County Sesquicentennial-Bicentennial Committee, 1976.
Staplebound. 8 1/2" X 5 1/2". Four staplebound pages with pictorial wraps, plus laid-in "Acknowledgements" sheet and newspaper clipping of "Just for Kids" column by Ben L. Moon about the murder of Chief McIntosh. Mild wear to staplebound wraps. This playbill for the 1976 Sesquicentennial-Bicentennial Pageant includes an introduction to the writing of the play by West Georgia Regional Library Director Edith Foster, a synopsis of scenes, full cast list, production crew list, and a list of individuals and organizations who contributed. A remarkable artifact of The Sesquicentennial-Bicentennial Pageant that took place in Carrollton, Georgia in 1976, a "salute" to "Carroll County's First Citizen--Chief William McIntosh--and the Creeks" who in 1825, against Creek law, signed a treaty ceding much of remaining Creek lands to the United States including what would become Carroll County the year following, in 1826. Very good. Item #5967
