Georgia Historic Newspapers: South Georgia (Galileo)

http://sgnewspapers.galileo.usg.edu/

This website is a good source of newspapers from the South Georgia (USA) region, containing issues from 1845-1922 (within the public domain).  The archive includes issues of the Americus Times-Recorder (Americus, GA) and the Sumter Republican (Americus, GA), as well as newspapers from these other South Georgia cities: Albany, Bainbridge, Brunswick, Cuthbert, Thomasville, Tifton, Valdosta, and Waycross.  Browsing these issues gives a sense of the public sphere created by the traditional local newspaper.
