As Georgia observes the 150th anniversary of the state seceding from the Union in 1861, the Bulloch County Historical Society will hear about the root causes that divided the nation, the steps to Georgia’s secession and something about those who participated in the debate. Sterling “Skip” Skinner, a former resident of Statesboro, will present the program, “Georgia Secedes! Looking Back 150 Years.”
