About the Author

In Images of America: Troup County, authors Glenda Ralston Major, Forrest Clark Johnson III, and Kaye Lanning Minchew tell the story of the county from its earliest settlement days to the modern technological era. Using photographs donated by countless individuals and groups to the Troup County Archives and Georgia Department of Archives, they span the history of the county from 1826 to today. The authors have written several volumes about Troup County and west Georgia history.
