county information

Warren County was created from Burke, Columbia, Washington, and Wilkes counties on Dec. 19, 1793 by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1793, p. 10). Georgia's 16th county was named for Massachusetts' Gen. Joseph Warren, who was killed early in the American Revolution at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

In 1857, Glascock County was created entirely from Warren County (Ga. Laws 1857, p. 35). Also, portions of Warren County were used to create Jefferson County (1796), Taliaferro County (1825), and McDuffie County (1870).
