I am just now getting around to posting the pictures and markers that I visited in Lafayette, Georgia back in August of 2014. In doing so, I noticed that there is a marker that was posted, the DAR marker for the Chattooga Academy, that I did not notice, or take pictures of during my visit. This marker was originally posted in 2008, and upon comparing and contrasting the pictures that I took in 2014 with the pictures taken in 2008, I am of the opinion that this particular marker is no longer there, and that it is missing from the spot indicated in the 2008 posting.
