Marion County

Marion County was created in 1827. Georgia's 72nd county was named for the Revolutionary War hero General Francis Marion. Known as the "Swamp Fox," Marion campaigned successfully against the British in South Carolina.

Fort Perry was built in Marion County by General John Floyd on the old Alabama Road. It was named in honor of the hero of the Lake Erie Battle in 1812.
