9781514338186: Echoes from the Valley: 2nd Edition

If you enjoy reading about real murders in a small southern town, this book is for you. During the 1930s and 40s, Fort Valley, Georgia, was not the sleepy, tranquil, little hamlet as envisioned, but a community where murders were occurring with alarming frequency-- killings so sensational and shockingly gruesome that they remain hot topics to this day. The horrific slaying of Denise Murray Allison in 1986--the most savage and brutal killing in local history-- was never prosecuted. Her demonic killer still walks free among the townsfolk. The clues therein may lead you to the killer’s identity. Fort Valley, originally named Fox Valley, was once the “Peach Capital of the World.” During the 1920s, some 50 thousand visitors converged on Fort Valley to view its vast sea of peach blossoms, to witness extravagant parades, and to eat free barbeque. The railroad arrived during the 1850s and was later used to transport peaches to northern markets. Peach County was created in 1924, incorporating Fort Valley with the whistle stops at Byron and Powersville. In 1927, Lawrence Luce built his first school bus and established Blue Bird Body Company as the nation’s premier bus manufacturer. In 1895, an all-black college, Fort Valley State University, was founded. Included are many sensational stories such as the man buried crossways the world, the man buried alive, the bloody fight at Bay Creek, and the police-drug dealer shoot-out on Chapman Road.

Descripción CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. This item is printed on demand. 200 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.5in.Echoes from the Valley steps back into history to relive the storied past of one of Georgias most unique cities--Fort Valley, U. S. A. Once the Peach Capital of the World, Fort Valley was renowned for its peach festivals during the 1920s. During that era, 40 to 50 thousand visitors converged on Fort Valley annually to behold the vast sea of peach blossoms, to witness extravagant parades, and to eat free barbeque. The railroad arrived during the 1850s, establishing Fort Valley as a railroad community and populating the Byron and Powersville whistle stops along its path. Fort Valley proudly boasts of Blue Bird Body Company, the nations premier bus manufacturer, started when Lawrence Luce built his first school bus in 1927, and Fort Valley State University, founded in 1895. Fort Valley is replete with historic landmarks such as Everett Square, Bliss, Sylvan Dell, and Dope Hill. The book also chronicles the founding of Fort Valley, Byron, Powersville and the creation of Peach County As historical research unfolded, it became increasingly apparent that Fort Valley, during its early days, was not the sleepy, tranquil, uneventful, little hamlet that had been envisioned, but at times was a community where murders, criminal acts, and misdeeds were occurring with appalling frequency. Murders committed during the 1930s and 1940s were so sensational and shockingly gruesome that they remain hot topics of conversation to this day. Covered in-depth, based on police records, is the horrific 1986 slaying of Denise Murray Allison, whose needless murder, the most savage and brutal killing in Peach County history, has never been prosecuted. Her demonic, yet unknown killer walks among the citizens of Fort Valley. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Nº de ref. de la librería 9781514338186
