GEORGIA'S LAND LOTTERY

Today when people speak of the Georgia lottery, they are probably referring

to one of the many state-sponsored gambling
games.

These "games" are widely recognized for the funding of the Hope scholarship

program and many other educational programs.

But Georgia's first lotteries came at the start of the 19th century and
represented a much darker side of Georgia's history, for it
was through these lotteries that land belonging to Creek and Cherokee
Indians was distributed.

The Georgia Land Lottery

Seven times between 1805 and 1832 Georgia used a lottery system to
distribute the land taken from the Cherokee or Creek
Indians.

These lotteries were unique to the state; no other state used a lottery
system to distribute land. Lot size varied widely, even in
the individual lotteries. The largest lots distributed were 490 acres in
the 1805 and the 1820 land lottery. The smallest lots were
the 40-acre gold lots distributed during the Gold Lottery of 1832.

Many people, including the state of Georgia, combine the Land Lottery of
1832 and the Gold Lottery of 1832 and represent it
as a single lottery; however, both the enabling legislation and the
drawings themselves were independent, hence there were
seven lotteries, not six.

Prior to 1803 Georgia distributed land via a headright system. Designed to
prohibit corruption, the system actually encouraged
it.

During early administrations the government abused this system and created
what today is generally known as the Yazoo Land
Fraud. These abuses led to the adoption of the lottery system in May, 1803
under governor John Milledge. The first lottery
under the new system occurred in 1805.

Almost 3/4 of the land in present-day Georgia was distributed under this
lottery system. During the 27 years that land was
distributed under the system the rules and the methods of the lottery
remained virtually unchanged. Applicants could be white
males over 18 (or 21 depending on the lottery), orphans, or widows. Fees
depended on the lottery and the size of the lot won,
but in general they only covered the cost of running the lottery. The state

did not profit from allocating these lands. Fractional
lots were sold in each of the lotteries and some lands, especially those
near major rivers, was exempt from the lottery. These
were distributed by the state using alternate, frequently corrupt, methods.

George Parrish, Jr. Georgia Archives

For each person subscribing to a lottery a ticket was placed in the barrel.

Since each lottery was over-subscribed, blank
tickets were added to compensate for the over-subscription. According to
the state archives, no record remains of the people
who drew the blank tickets after the 1805 lottery.

1805 Land Lottery This encompassed Creek Indian lands just west of the
Oconee River ceded to the state in 1802 and a
small strip of land in the southeast section of the state.

1807 Land Lottery Included additional Creek lands.

1820 Land Lottery After the Creek War (1814), Andrew Jackson demanded the
secession of the southern third of
present-day Georgia. A second section of land in northeast Georgia was
included. This defined the eastern end of the
Cherokee Nation for 12 years.

1821 Land Lottery Further Creek cessions

1827 Land Lottery Signaled the end of the Creek Indians in Georgia.

1832 Land Lottery This lottery, along with the 1832 Gold Lottery, gave the
Cherokee Nation to Georgia settlers. Sparked the
"Trail of Tears." 1832 Gold Lottery By the time of the gold lottery
Georgia's Gold Rush was winding down. The state did not
guarantee that gold existed on the lot.

Husband's Research Notes

REPRINT of OFFICIAL REGISTER of LAND LOTTERY OF GEORGIA 1827 FOREWORD
The section of the state including these lands was ceded by the Indian
Springs Treaty of February 12, 1825, which was not
ratified, and on account of which Gen. McIntosh was put to death by a
delegtaion of his own nation, at his home in the present
Carroll county, May 1, 1825. The transfer of this territory to the state
was officially consummated by the treaty made at
Washington City, January 24, 1826, when an agreement was made that the
Creek Indians should vacate on or before January
1, 1827. This treaty was not recognized by Gov. Troup, and he ordered the
survey into districts by the terms of the Indian
Springs agreement. The Federal government and the state became involved in
a serious controversy which was not amicably
adjusted until the holding of the conference at Fort Mitchell, (Alabama)
November 15, 1827, when the United States agreed to
pay the Creek Indians $28,000 for the territory.

Muscogee, Troup, Coweta, Lee, and Carroll counties were then created to
embody the newly acquired territory. They were
amed to honor the Muscogee people, from whom it was acquired; Gov. George
McIntosh Troup; the birthplace in the Indian
nation, of Gen. William McIntosh; Gen. R. H. Lee, of Virginia; and Charles
Carroll, signer of the Declaration of Independence.

Examination of the lists will show many who first settled in the lands
acquired by the Cherokee cession of 1817, the Creek
cession of 1818, and many of the settlers who came in just after the last
war with Great Britain. It is very evident that this
eastern country saw a large influx of population during the period from
1815 to 1819.

The student of economic development in Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi,
and the territory west, will find names of those
who came later to the front in the annals of the Nation. The large number
of Revolutionary service notations indicate men of
families and affairs, and not mere adventurers in the new fields.

This volume will, without doubt, prove of useful service. Peter A. Brannon,

History, Montgomery.

GEORGIA LAWS 1825 page 119. AN ACT

Amendatory of an act passed the ninth June, eighteen hundred and
twenty-five to dispose of and distribute the lands lately

twenty-five.

inferior courts to carry into effect the provisions of this
amendatory act, shall insert in the oaths laid down in the before recited

FROM THE PUBLISHER OF THE 1976 REPRINT EDTION
This reprint edition of the 1827 Land Lottery contains a new index prepared

especially for this Bicentennial Year. Anyone who
has used the original book with its index or the later reprints will have
noticed that the original index was very inadequate. It
contained misspelled names, omission of names (in fact Miss Edith Clark who

prepared the new index said she found 3
consecutive pages ommited from the index), names with the wrong page
assigned to them, names in the index which were not
to be found in the book. Therefore this new index has been prepared in
hopes that it will remedy some of the frustration that
people using this Lottery have experienced as they sought to locate members

of their family.

The reader's attention is also called to the fact that this printed 1827
Lottery found printed herein is not the complete 1827
Land Lottery, as many people do not know this. There is a second part of
this Lottery which several knowledgeable
genealogists tell me has disappeared completely. Miss Houston did not state

in her 1928 edition that there was a second part
to this Lottery, but she did in her small pamphlet-booklet "600
Revolutionary Soldiers Living in Georgia in 1827-8" published
in 1932, and I will quote a part of her introduction to that booklet, viz.

"During the drawings the list of those participating was published daily.
Subsequently these lists were bound in two volumes.

Only a few copies of these volumes are known to be in existence now.

"The first volume has been reprinted under the title, 'Official Register of

Land Lottery of 1827 (Reprint).' It contains the names

Research Notes for Child: John B. ST JOHN-[1090](cont.)
The losses of the regiment will be found at the head of this chapter, but
if to that list were added those who are disabled by
wounds, but not discharged, and the number now missing, the total loss
would approximate two-thirds of all who have ever
belonged to it.
So closes the drama of the actions of the Thirty-fifth Georgia regiment,
and here let the curtain fall until a new scene shall be
presented, in which the few of this regiment now fit for duty will be
prominent actors, and we doubt not that each member will
perform his part as faithfully as in the past, so that the regimental pride

shall not be lowered, or that the laurels it has gained
upon
seventeen gory fields be removed from its banners. The narrow limits
allowed prevent a notice of all the promotions among the
officers, and the changes wrought by death and wounds, nor has it been
possible to note the many instances of gallantry
discharged by different members of this command. While they are unwritten
they are not unknown, and it is confidently hoped
that a record of their achievements will be published, so that posterity
yet unborn shall delight to dwell upon the deeds of valor
and heroism performed by those who sacrificed for home all its endearments,

and for freedom that which man may take but
cannot
give.
