Clinch County Created

Gov. George Towns signed legislation creating Clinch County as Georgia’s 95th county. Created from Lowndes and Ware counties, the county was named for Gen. Duncan L. Clinch, who defeated Osceola in the Second Seminole War and who also represented Georgia in the U.S. House of Representatives (1844-45).
