Born in County Mayo, Ireland, in 1823, William Montague Browne moved to the United States in 1852 to become an editor of the New York Journal of Commerce. In 1859 he moved to Washington where he edited and finally owned the Washington Constitution. While living there he became an ardent champion of the Southern cause and when Georgia seceded he moved South. During the Civil War he served in several capacities -- Director of Conscription in Georgia, aide-de-camp to Davis, brigadier general -- and was one of those who took part in the defense of Savannah. After the war, Browne moved to Athens, Georgia, where he edited the Southern Banner for a short time, studied law and was admitted to the Georgia bar, and tried farming on a plantation in Oglethorpe County. Later he founded and edited the Southern Farm and Home and became Secretary of the Carolina Life Insurance Co., of which Jefferson Davis was president. After the failure of this company, Browne returned to Athens and was elected the first Professor of History and Political Science at the University of Georgia. - Jacket flap

In the 1830's the town of Auraria, located in north Georgia, grew up and reached its zenith. Herein is the colorful story of this exciting gold-mining town, the first in American history, antedating by almost two decades the mining booms in the West.

In placing Auraria in its proper perspective the author goes beyond a mere local study and brings in historic developments which concerned the South and the nation as a whole --Page 2 of cover
