"Our object has been, from the earliest and most authentic sources of information at command, to convey a correct impression of the location, characteristics, form of government, social relations, manufactures, domestic economy, diversions, and customs of the Southern Indians, at the time of primal contact between them and the Europeans. This introductory part of the work is followed by an examination of tumuli, earthworks, and various relics obtained from burial-mounds, gathered amid refuse-piles, found in ancient graves, and picked up in cultivated fields and on the sties of old villages and fishing-reosrts. Whenever these could be interpreted in the light of early recorded observations, or were capable of explanation by customs not obsolete at the dawn of the historic period, the authorities relied upon have been carefully noted." - Preface. Detailed account of the known history, culture and material culture of Southern native americans, particularly in Georgia, by the Civil War era mayor of Savannah, a member of the American Antiquarian Society. ; xvi, 532 pages.
