It is hard to imagine a version of Cranberry Township that was comprised of lush forests, gently rolling hills, and cascading waves of open fields. For the settlers who arrived here in the late 1700s, it was an Eden of abundant opportunity--tranquility that proved irresistible. They purchased hundreds of acres, built self-sustaining farms, and planted their roots. These pioneers had names like Graham, Garvin, Duncan, Meeder, Rowan, and Goehring, and many of their descendants still remain. While its name pays homage to the marshy bogs that produced succulent cranberries, its heritage is rooted in humble beginnings that remained largely untouched for centuries. Only with the dawn of an expanding highway system beginning in the 1950s did Cranberry Township begin its rapid transformation from farm community to suburban hot spot.

Phenix City, Alabama, on the western bank of the Chattahoochee River across from Columbus, Georgia, was officially incorporated as Brownville in 1883. However, its history can be traced through Girard, Knights Station, Summerville, Fort Mitchell, the Creek Indian town of Coweta, and several other communities within Russell County. Phenix City has provided a setting for many of the important events in Alabama’s history from early Spanish explorers, to its rich Native American heritage, to its role in opening and settling the Southern frontier, to its adherence to King Cotton, to its rebirth after being regarded the “wickedest city in America.” Phenix City has undergone profound change and yet has retained its rural charm.

In May of 1825, Reverend Marcus Swift traveled along the middle branch of the Rouge River until he found a place he thought was close to heaven. Soon streets, homes, and businesses were established as more pioneers arrived in Nankin Township. In 1963, the J.L. Hudson Company chose Nankin Township as the site of a new shopping mall called Westland. When the mall became a target for annexation, residents joined forces to create their own city. Thus, the city of Westland was born. Through rare photographs drawn from various sources, this book takes readers on a journey through nearly 200 years of local history, from the death of Chief Tonquish to the present day.

On April 12, 1861, Confederate forces at Fort Johnson fired upon Federal-occupied Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor, etching James Island's name in American history as the starting place of the War Between the States. The island was a battleground for war skirmishes, live oak-laden property that housed antebellum plantations, fertile soil that yielded sea island cotton, precious land that enslaved so many, and a rural planting community existing in the shadow of Charleston. More than this, though, James Island was and is a beloved home to generations of proud families and individuals. This South Carolina sea island, which once flourished and folded under the bondage of slavery, is now a place where all races live and celebrate its rich heritage. The Gullah culture and language thrive and are treasured here, as are the Southern traditions of the original planters and their descendants.

Atlanta, the thriving capital of the New South, has a rich and fascinating history. In Atlanta Scenes, authors Kimberly S. Blass and Michael Rose draw from the works of some of the city�s earliest and finest photojournalists�Francis Price, Marion Johnson, Bill Wilson, and Kenneth Rogers�to bring that history to life. Atlanta Scenes documents some of the city�s noteworthy events, personalities, and landmarks, many of which will be readily identifiable. The images range from the everyday (baseball games at Ponce de Leon Ballpark, boys on bicycles, and Humane Society dog rescues) to the eventful (the Gone with the Wind premiere, the deadly Winecoff Hotel fire, and the infamous Leo Frank trial). Many scenes reflect the iconography of the Old South, while others provide insight into the harsh realities of twentieth-century life. In this volume, well-crafted, artistic images blend with on-the-spot action shots.

<DIV><B>Rumors, witchcraft, and murder in this true crime account of one of New Jersey’s most notorious cold cases—from two <I>Weird N.J.</I> magazine contributors.</B><BR />  <BR /> As Springfield residents decorated for Halloween in September 1972, the crime rate in the affluent New Jersey township was at its lowest in years.
