Since the arrival of Spanish explorers, colonists, and missionaries in the early 1500s, Liberty County has been a microcosm of American history. Later settled by Puritans in the mid-1700s, this coastal community nestled midway between Savannah and Darien was honored with the name Liberty for providing two of Georgia's three signers of the Declaration of Independence. Liberty County and her citizens have played significant roles in every period from the Civil War and Reconstruction to the civil rights movement and the Iraq War. From the sparkling waves lapping on St. Catherine's Island and the mysteriously beautiful tidewater to the piney sandhills of Hinesville and Fort Stewart, the land of Liberty has provided history with a dramatic backdrop.Title: Lifelong Liberty County resident Meredith Devendorf knows a picture is worth 1,000 words.

Lifelong Liberty County resident Meredith Devendorf knows a picture is worth 1,000 words. Recently, she dug up images of damage caused by a massive hurricane that struck the Georgia coast in 1983, pictures of Liberty County during its post-Civil War reconstruction period and snapshots of shark hunts, community gatherings and past Fort Stewart soldiers.



As Devendorf, who helps manage Melon Bluff Nature Preserve and Springfield Plantation, unearthed more than 200 photographs from various sources around the county, she began to organize and categorize her finds. She made notations and added facts about the photos??? origins and, eventually, put together a pictorial history book.



Her book, ???Images of America Liberty County??? is geared toward those who, like Devendorf, are fascinated with the history of the region.



However, she said, it???s not your average book about Liberty County.



???I have always been interested in the stories of ordinary people,??? Devendorf saidl│╝
