My Autobiography by William Cotter, 1917
This book contains some early history of Murray history not found elsewhere. Please be aware that some of Rev. Cotter's details are just plain wrong. I think that he arrived at some of his opinions by ignoring important facts in order to give credibility to his personal biases. For example, Cotter insists that the State of Georgia did absolutely nothing illegal, deceitful, wrong or cruel in removing the Cherokees from Georgia.
Because the book is not easy for the casual reader to find, the entire book is being posted in this museum, with this caution: Just because the author was a preacher, that doesn't mean that everything he wrote is true.
Special thanks to Drew Hester for finding a copy of this rare book and scanning it for use by the museum!
