HISTORICAL FACTS ON THE OLD BLACKSHEAR TRAIL
By Mrs. J. L. Walker
'Old Blackshear Trail, written by Mrs. J. L. Walker of Waycross, is probably the only authent ic compilation of data on the trail, in existence. Mrs. Walker has been requested to publis h the story on a number of occasions, and it has appeared in one of the large dailies of th e state.
At the announcement of the unveiling of the Memorial tablet, Mrs. Walker gladly consented t o the publication of the article, which bears historic facts of interest to people throughou t this section.' [Perry Lynnfield Blackshear, Sr.]
Many interesting facts in the history of our country are being unearthed in the bringing fro m obscure places the old topographic maps of Georgia. The early surveys show the contour line s of the old trading paths and roads and many of these roads form boundaries of lands in diff erent sections of the country.
The Blackshear trail has the distinction of forming several boundaries in its routing to McIn tosh County. This Military road is found on several old maps, winding a circuitous route in a nd out of the once thickly forested lands in Southern Georgia. It passes many miles along th e banks of the Ocmulgee and Flint Rivers, opening an avenue of protection for the strugglin g colonies along the coast. Part of the road that was opened for the passing of General Black shear and his army was followed exclusively in many places, and when asked why he diverted hi s route he replied: 'I like to travel along the banks of the rivers owing to the convenienc e of receiving supplies for my army.' He also had to blaze the road for many miles out of th e way on account of the river swamps and only direct line of travel that followed to Darien w as after the road merged into the old
Barnard path in Pierce County.
Blackshear's military road had its beginning from Big Bend of the Ocmulgee River near Hartfor d, once the county seat of Pulaski. It was cut through the entire country on to what is now D ooly County passing along the banks of the Flint River in what is now Crisp County.
Here the army camped and built Fort Early. General Blackshear describes the building of thi s fort by his men, in a letter sent on August 13, 1813, to Governor Mitchell. The road passe d out of Crisp into Lee County, where General Blackshear and his men spent the night at Cheha w Village at the lower part of Wilcox, passing directly through the entire length of Telfair . Dr. B. M. Kennon's pharmacy at McRae is located in the middle of the old road which passe s along through old Jacksonville in that county.
It crosses little Ocmulgee into Coffee, through Appling, and it passes in the Barnard Path, c rossing Hurricane Creek into Pierce where General Blackshear, with 5,000 Indian prisoners, to gether with his men camped, the ground later being selected for the county site of Pierce Cou nty and named Blackshear. The road after passing into Ware County is designated in the Ordina ry's office as passing through lot 213, Gilcrist Park. This road, after leaving Gilcrist Park , passed down the old Train Road that leads out along the boarders of the Okefinokee Swamp; h ere two miles of the military road was corduroyed and the logs are serving today and the sam e purpose for which they were put there over a hundred years ago, making a causeway over th e marshy place. It passes Braganza, crosses Spanish Creek at Uptonville, through Bethel Churc h, Sardis School, Prospect Church, South across Cowhouse just below Starland Branch, comes i n then diagonally westward toward the swamp border to The Saint Marys River.
It then traverses a corner of Camden, and cuts through Glyim to McIntosh county.
The soldiers often had to swim swollen streams and raft over their effects of army supplies.
No obstacles were so great that they were not surmounted by General Blackshear's intrepid sol diers.
The following letters will not only furnish information in regard to the military road, but w ill show the spirit of the times:
Governor Mitchell to General David Blackshear, Milledgeville, August 4, 1813.
'Dear Sir: From the representations I have received of the fears of our people on the frontie r, under the present state of Indian hostility, I have to request that you will proceed to th at part of the frontier within your brigade, and adopt such measures as will afford some secu rity to the inhabitants until the troops now ordered to be got in readiness are marched to th e attack of the Indians.
You will report to me what you deem necessary in this respect and have as much regard to econ omy as the nature of the case will admit.
I am, dear sir, with great regard and esteem, your very obedient servant. D. B. Mitchell'
The gravity of the situation is shown in General Blackshear's reply to Governor Mitchell, whi ch follows:
'Oconee, August 13, 1813
I have just returned from my tour on the frontier of my brigade, where I found the inhabitant s in a high state of alarm--an immense number of whom had fled to the interior. I proceeded t o lay off three forts on the frontier of Twiggs county (at about ten miles distance from eac h other,) about one hundred feet square to have two blockades and enclosed with a stockad e 8 feet above ground, and ordered one subaltern, a sergeant, a corporal and fifteen private s to each, and a captain to command and superintend the building and discipline the men.
In Pulaski, having a greater extent of frontier as those in Twiggs, and the same number of me n to each (one of these in Fort Valley, in Crisp County,) I then proceeded to Telfair and lai d out there ninety feet square, and ordered one sergeant, a corporal and twelve privates to e ach and a subaltern to command the whole, to be relieved every ten days until further orders. '
Governor Mitchell directed that the whole of the lower frontier be protected by forts and blo ck houses, asking that the lower bridge over the river between the Okefinokee Swamp be occupi ed with a suitable garrison. He felt that this would hold the Indians in complete check, an d his plans for the protection of the settlers were fully carried out, but to no avail, for m assacres of the most cruel kind continued to occur in Southern Georgia.
The following year Governor Peter Early wrote General Blackshear and advised for the cuttin g of a road from Hartfort to Pulaski, to St. Marys. He stated: 'I have for some time forborn e taking any definite steps relating to the contemplated road from Ocmulgee to St. Marys, tho ugh we wish to have an understanding with Colonel Hawkins which might prevent anything unplea sant from arising between us and the friendly Indians. This understanding is now effected, an d there is no obstacle remaining against proceeding immediately to the accomplishment of th e object.'
Another letter from military headquarters, September 17, 1814, is quoted in part as follows:
'There is being represented to the commander-in-chief that the Indian frontier on the countie s of Twiggs, Pulaski, and Telfair is menaced with depredations from the hostile Indians. Brig adier General Blackshear will order some prudent and judicious officer with a patrol of caval ry, consisting of twenty privates, armed with guns, to explore the country between the Ocmulg ee, opposite Hartford, and Flint River, below and above the Hitchee Town. The object of the e xpedition is two-fold; First, to ascertain whether any hostile Indians are lurking in the qua rter; secondly, to ascertain the best practical route for a road from Hartford to Flint River , striking the latter below the mouth of Wecuy-wap creek. The officer who shall be ordered o n this service will be charged carefully to avoid any interruption with friendly Indians.
By order of the Commander-in-chief.
Anthony Porter, Secretary.'
Orders from Major General McIntosh for General Blackshear to march with Colonel Wimberley's r egiment of infantry from Camp Hope, on the Ocmulgee, to Hartford and from thence by openin g a road in the most direct way to the Flint River are as follows:
'Camp Hope, Dec. 14, 1814.
Brigadier General Blackshear will march, with Colonel Wimberley's regiment of infantry, direc t from this encampment to Hartford, on the Ocmulgee, and proceed from thence by opening a roa d in the most direct way to the Flint River, bearing in mind that he must apprise me, from ti me to time, of the strength and movement of any hostile Indians that he may acquire knowledg e of on the march, taking special care that the information sent me by the best means can aff ord or admit of, keeping in view the object of this march towit, to deter any hostile or mara uding party of Indians from committing acts of violence or making predatory excursions on th e frontier of the state of Georgia most exposed to their savage fury, making every effort a t the same time to arrive at the Flint River as speedily as possible, giving me the earlies t information of that event.
Upon General Blackshear's arrival at the Flint River, he will proceed to select a proper situ ation as a place of deposit for provisions, and throw up a small breastwork, with pickets aro und it, and two small block houses at right angles of the same, about sixteen or eighteen fee t square, which will be sufficient to secure the work for the assault on every side. A subalt ern's command will be sufficient for this on situation, who will remain and occupy it until o therwise ordered or relieved. His excellency, the governor, will detach two hundred horseme n to join the General at this point, as soon as in his opinion, a sufficient time has been al lowed to this detachment to reach the Flint River.
Major Blue of the 39th regiment, with about sixteen hundred mounted men. Choctawa, Chickasaw s and Creeks, were to march on the first instant in pursuit of the Red Sticks and their allie s. Colonel Hawkins' warriors are likewise ready, and will join to chastise the Seminoles or a ny other tribe of the hostile Indians that may be collected or collecting; and (If necessary ) I will combine my whole force to that object which will depend on the intelligence I shal l receive from you.
If there shall be the smallest grounds for believing a collected enemy in the route directed , the general will be particularly cautious to march in regular order, either in two or thre e columns, as he finds most convenient-keeping an advance and rear guard, with double flanker s in center, front and rear to prevent surprise or ambuscade. The Flankers ought to be reliev ed every hour, having an arduous duty.
Before you march you will order the regimental surgeons to report to you any of your detachme nt incapable of performing duty from indisposition; and should there be any that require an y medical aid, a surgeon's mate must be left with them, and one or two attendants, if necessa ry, with orders to proceed on to Fort Mitchell as soon as surgeon deems them able to perfor m the march.
By order of Major General John McIntosh.

(Lunsford Pitts R eese is injured severely in the Civil War, having joined the AL 33rd in Greenville, Butler, A L, and goes to Bonifay, FL, after the war.) This is also the first connection I?ve found t o the Lunsford family (Henry Lunsford), some of whom that went to Texas in the group with Sim eon Dean in 1870 are surely from the same family. Tomalin Reese?s grandmother was Susan Colem an (Andrew Jackson Deens married a Louise Coleman although I do not know if related).
