Evans County Proposed

Gov. John Slaton signed a proposed constitutional amendment creating Evans County from portions of Bulloch and Tattnall counties. The county was named for former Confederate general, historian, and minister Clement A. Evans. Georgia voters ratified the amendment on Nov. 3, 1914, making Evans Georgia’s 152nd county.
