Gathering Georgians to Zion

Gathering Georgians to Zion

John Hamilton Morgan’s 1876 Mission to Georgia

(p.185) Chapter 7 Gathering Georgians to Zion
Reconstructing Appalachia

Mary Ella Engel

University Press of Kentucky

John Hamilton Morgan was one of the men who was called to serve in the Southern State Mission, who travelled to Georgia in 1867 and carved a productive field of labor among the ridges and valleys of northwest Georgia. Under the influence of John Morgan, hundreds of new Saints left Georgia for a better life in the new Mormon Zion—an experience that transcends regional boundaries and places nineteenth-century Appalachian Georgians within the broader national movements to the West.
