Harris County, Georgia

Harris County is a county located in the west-central portion of the U. S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 32,024; the county seat is Hamilton. The largest city in the county is Pine Mountain, a resort town, home to the world-famous Callaway Gardens Resort and Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park. Harris County was created on December 14, 1827, named for Charles Harris, a Georgia judge and attorney. Harris County is part of GA-AL Metropolitan Statistical Area, it is part of the Black Belt in the southern United States, an upland area developed for cotton plantations in the 19th century before the American Civil War. Muscogee County, to the south, was more developed for cotton; the county was settled by European Americans after the federal government had forcibly removed the indigenous Creek people, who were relocated to Indian Territory west of the Mississippi River. In the antebellum era, parts of the county were developed for cotton plantations, the premier commodity crop.

Planters imported numerous slaves as workers from the Upper South through the domestic slave trade. The County Courthouse was designed by Edward Columbus Hosford of Georgia and completed in 1906. By the late 19th century, there were 200 years of families, black and mixed-race, with many interconnections among them. Moonshiners were active in the mountain areas of the county in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. On January 22, 1912, a black woman and three black men were lynched in Hamilton, the county seat for the murder of young local white landowner Norman Hadley, he was described by journalist Karen Branan in her 2016 book about these events as a white "near penniless plowboy-playboy" and "notorious predator of black women."Of this group, Dusky Crutchfield was the first woman lynched in Georgia, the lynching case attracted attention of national northern newspapers. Murdered by the lynch mob were Eugene Harrington, Burrell Hardaway, Johnie Moore; the four had been taken in for questioning about Hadley's murder by Sheriff Marion Madison "Buddie" Hadley, but never arrested.

Lynched as scapegoats by a white mob of 100 men, they were shown to have been utterly innocent. As an example of the complex relationships in the town and county, Johnie Moore was a mixed-race cousin of the sheriff. In 1947, prosperous farmer Henry "Peg" Gilbert, a married African-American man who owned and farmed 100 acres in Troup County, was arrested by officials from neighboring Harris County and charged with harboring a fugitive; the 47-year-old father was accused in the case of Gus Davidson, an African-American man accused of fatally shooting a white man in Harris County. Davidson had disappeared. Four days Gilbert was dead, shot while held in jail by the Harris County Sheriff, who said it was self-defense. No charges were filed against him. In 2016 the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project of Northeastern University reported on this death in custody, they had found that Gilbert had been beaten before his death, shot five times. They asserted he had been killed because whites resented his success as a farmer.

On March 3, 2019, an EF3 tornado impacted the county, the first significant tornado to impact the area since 1954. The county is now part of the Columbus, metropolitan area, which has become industrialized and developed a more varied economy. By per capita income, the county is the sixth-wealthiest in Georgia, the wealthiest county in the state outside of Metro Atlanta. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 473 square miles, of which 464 square miles are land and 9.1 square miles are covered by water. The county is located in the Piedmont region of the state, with forests and rolling hills covering much of the county; the Pine Mountain Range begins in the county, runs across the northernmost parts of the county, with the highest point on the range found at Dowdell's Knob near the Meriwether County line. The majority of Harris County is located in the Middle Chattahoochee River-Lake Harding subbasin of the ACF River Basin, with the exception of the county's southeastern border area, south of Ellerslie, located in the Middle Chattahoochee River-Walter F. George Lake subbasin of the same ACF River Basin.

Union of Russian Patriots

The Union of Russian Patriots was an organization of Russian emigres living in France. The organization was pro-Soviet and was active from 1943 to 1948; when Germany invaded the USSR, the occupation authorities started with massive arrests of Russian emigres residing in France, e.g. D. Odinets. Many Russians participated in the French resistance movement, a number of those founded the Union of Russian Patriots on 3 October 1943 in collaboration with the French Communist Party; the union published the newspaper Russian Patriot. After the Liberation of France the organization was renamed the Union of Soviet Patriots and the newspaper was renamed Soviet Patriot; the activities of the Union proceeded with contacts with the Soviet consulate general in Paris. At that time, the membership of the Union was estimated to be 6,500. After the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR published the decree on reinstating Soviet citizenship for former subject of the Russian empire living in France, many White emigres decided to apply for Soviet passports.

Thereafter, the Union itself was again renamed, this time becoming the Union of Soviet Citizens in France. Against the backdrop of the Cold War, in 1947 the French authorities arrested and expelled most of the Union's leaders from France. On 16 January 1948 the Union was closed on the order of the French internal minister. In March 1948, all participants of a gathering of the board of the Union were arrested and deported to the Soviet occupation zone in Germany. Pavel M.

Amazilia hummingbird

The amazilia hummingbird is a species of hummingbird, a family of small near passerine birds. The Loja hummingbird, with less rufous to the underparts, is sometimes considered a subspecies of the amazilia hummingbird; the amazilia hummingbird occurs in south-western Ecuador. It is common, can be seen in major cities such as Lima and Guayaquil, it prefers dry, open or semi-open habitats, but occurs in forest. In its range it is recognized by the combination of a black-tipped red bill and rufous underparts, it is a territorial species. Its diet consists of small insects and nectar of flowering Erythrina and other flower corollas of medium length, it can spend 80% of its time resting, using the rest of its time to forage and defend its territory. It breeds year round with cup like nests only ~3cm above the ground. There is academic discussion on if Amazilia alticola should be labeled as a separate species or a subspecies of Amazilia amazilia.. Schulenberg, T. D. Stotz, D. Lane, J. O'Neill, & T. Parker III.
