More about this marker. This marker is a duplicate of another marker (53668), standing 100 yards west on Paces Ferry Road. The original marker in that location has been erected in the late 1950s by the Georgia Historic Commission. It had disappeared, so a replacement was installed in 1985 (this marker). When this marker disappeared too, another replacement was cast and installed.
Eventually this marker was recovered. In approximately 2005 or 2006 it was restored, and installed on a new post in this location, as part of a beautification effort and walking trail in the area near old the Chattahoochee River bridge.
