From the Back Cover
Since its founding in 1733, Savannah, Georgia, has seduced visitors with its verdant beauty and its palpable sense of history. Rebels, Saints, and Sinners reveals the true stories behind some of the city's most notorious figures, including Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, who captured the city during the Civil War, and Daniel Hogan, whose dry-goods store was the flash point for a devastating fire in 1889.
These essays also highlight local heroes--for example, sometime-resident and baseball great "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, and Cynthia Jacobson, still trying to solve a 100-year-old family murder. From John Wesley, founder of Methodism, to rock-and-roll pioneer Elvis Presley, many notable figures have left their mark on the city, and most of them are chronicled here.
Timothy Daiss, a Savannah native, is a journalist, columnist, and author whose works have appeared in local, regional, and national publications. His column runs weekly in five Georgia newspapers. This is his second book.
