Drawing from a wealth of information, particularly from primary sources such as diaries, letters, plantation records, etc., the author has recreated the story of James Hamilton Couper and his times into an exciting, interesting, and readable account. Bagwell examines the Couper heritage from kings, war, and intrigue in Scotland to their firm establishment on the Georgia Coast. Couper made quite a name for himself in the area of politics, plantation management, scientific agriculture, archaeology, and architectural design. In the sinking of the Pulaski, he was hailed a hero of the occasion. The publication of this volume will be a valuable addition to the history and the culture of the South, especially Georgia and its coast.
