Montgomery County, Georgia

Montgomery County is a county in the U. S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 9,123; the county seat is Mount Vernon. Montgomery County is part of GA Micropolitan Statistical Area. Montgomery County is named in honor of Richard Montgomery, an American Revolutionary War general killed in 1775 while attempting to capture Quebec City, Canada, it was created on December 1793 from a southern portion of Washington County, Georgia. Arthur Lott's Plantation was designated the first county seat in 1797. In 1801, Tattnall County, Georgia was formed from the southern part of Montgomery County; the dividing line between Tatnall and Montgomery ran from the mouth of Limestone Creek on the Oconee River, just below modern Mount Vernon, Georgia, to the mouth of Wolf Creek on the Canoochee River below Metter, Georgia. On December 11, 1811, the county lines between Washington County, Montgomery County, Laurens County were adjusted by the Georgia General Assembly; the northern section of Montgomery between the Oconee River and the Ohoopee River was transferred to Laurens.

On December 10, 1812, the county line of Montgomery was adjusted as part of the creation of Emanuel County. Its new boundaries became from the Laurens and Telfair county line on the Oconee River to the north prong of the Little Ocmulgee River down the Little Ocmulgee River as it meanders to its confluence with the Ocmulgee River downstream as it meanders to the Oconee River North 30 degrees to Milligan's Creek in Tatnall County, with it to the Montgomery County line. Pendleton Creek was used as the border between Emanuel; because of these transitions Montgomery regained part of the land it had lost in the creation of Tatnall County in 1801, but lost land along the upper Oconee River to Laurens County. The creation of Emanuel County put the old county seat within Emanuel's border. On December 12, the Georgia General Assembly appointed the justices of the inferior court of Montgomery county to a commission to designate a new county seat and called for county business to be held until at the home of James Alston.

In 1813, the General Assembly recognized Mount Vernon as the new county seat. The county line between Telfair County and Montgomery was adjusted once again in 1820 by the Georgia Genera Assembly; the new line differed in the upstream portion of the Little Ocmulgee River and better defined the line and gave Montgomery a small border with Pulaski County and Telfair County some land on the northeast side of the Little Ocmulgee River. The line was to go upstream to its fork to Browning's mill, a straight line to the mouth of Joiner's Creek at the second fork of the Little Ocmulgee River, up the second prong to Pulaski County Line; the land gained by Telfair County from Montgomery County on the northeast side of the Little Ocmulgee River was reversed by the Georgia General Assembly on December 18, 1833. At the time of the 1850 United States Census, Montgomery had 613 slaves. By the 1860 census, there were 2,014 whites, 977 slaves, 6 Free people of color; the pine barrens and soil quality outside of the river lands made the area unsuitable for slave-heavy cotton producing plantation culture.

Montgomery's status as a majority white county led the region developing different attitudes about secession from other areas of Georgia. On January 22, 1861, Montgomery County representatives, Thomas M. McRae and Solon Homer Latimer, were among the 89 delegates who voted no to Georgia's immediate secession from the Union at the state secession convention. In addition, McRae and Latimer were among the 6 delegates who voiced their protest by against the Ordinance of Secession in the published document. In the interior of the county around Gum Swamp near the Pulaski County, Telfair County, Montgomery County lines a deserter gang fought against Confederate forces. On August 18, 1905, Montgomery County gained and lost some territory during the creation of Toombs County. On August 14, 1912, the parts of Montgomery County between the Little Ocmulgee River and the Oconee River became Wheeler County. On August 21, 1917, Montgomery lost additional territory during the creation of Treutlen County, Georgia.

More the county was noted for its practice of organizing segregated proms, a practice that had continued since integration of its schools in the 1970s. Following publicity about this practice, Montgomery County students took the initiative to integrate the prom in 2010. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 245 square miles, of which 240 square miles is land and 5.2 square miles is water. The southeastern quarter of Montgomery County is located in the Altamaha River sub-basin of the larger river basin by the same name; the western half of the county, from Tarrytown south, is located in the Lower Oconee River sub-basin of the Altamaha River basin. The northeastern quarter of Montgomery County, northeast of a line from Tarrytown to Higgston, is located in the Ohoopee River sub-basin of the same Altamaha River basin. Treutlen County Toombs County Jeff Davis County Wheeler County As of the census of 2000, there were 8,270 people, 2,919 households, 2,063 families living in the county.

72 Hours (The Killing)

"72 Hours" is the twenty-third episode of the American television drama series The Killing, the tenth of its second season, which aired on the AMC channel in the United States on May 27, 2012. It is directed by Nicole Kassell. In the episode, Sarah Linden finds herself in a psychiatric ward, while Stephen Holder continues the investigation. Stan Larsen attempts to repair the damage. Darren Richmond returns to the Seattle All Stars basketball program. Linden wakes up in a hospital bed with an identification bracelet on her wrist, she walks down the hall, tries to open a locked door—which bears a sign outside: "Psychiatry Acute Ward". In the waiting room, Lt. Carlson tells Holder that Linden attacked a casino worker while trying to kill herself. Holder says the tribe is hiding evidence and informs him that the Larsen case files disappeared on the way to county police. Linden tries to call Holder from a nursing station but is told the phone is only available during certain hours, she learns. At the Larsen home, Stan apologizes to Terry, who says the case may never be solved, that he is angry because he cannot let go, suggests he fix what he can.

Stan approaches Amber and Bennet Ahmed at their front door. He admits to them that he was wrong, that Rosie cared for Bennett, that she came to say goodbye that night. Bennet threatens to call the police. Amber walks out her front door and turns on the porch light, realizing Stan has fixed it. A crying Stan calls Rosie's phone and leaves a message, apologizing for never telling her that he was not her biological father, he surprises Terry and the boys with a bulldog. At the marina, Holder asks Regi to help get Linden released from the hospital, she says. She mentions that she has seen what happens to Linden when she neglects everything else in her life, and, how it started "last time". Holder notices a Mayor Adams billboard at the waterfront construction site and notes Michael Ames is the project manager, he calls police technician Ray at the station, who researches and tells him that a man was arrested and released after breaking into the site on the night of Rosie's murder. Linden meets with a psychiatrist, Dr. Ann Kerry, who says Linden may leave the hospital early if she cooperates.

Kerry suggests they discuss the prior murder case that sent Linden to the psychiatry ward. Linden tells her about that case, during which she found a six-year-old boy in an apartment with his mother's decomposing body; the boy, who continuously drew pictures of trees, ended up in foster care. Linden discusses both murder cases with the doctor, suggesting that both victims were "trying to tell her something"; the doctor asks why the two cases mean so much, but Linden quietens, demands to leave, struggles against two orderlies who come in to restrain her. At a Seattle All Stars basketball event, Jamie Wright argues they should be courting votes they do not have, but Gwen Eaton reassures Richmond to campaign for what feels genuine. Richmond shoots some baskets from his wheelchair. In the office, Jamie finds a cufflink with the city seal, shows it to Richmond and says Gwen closed the office the night before, they both wonder. At the waterfront, an officer tells Holder he arrested a man named Joseph Nowak for breaking into the construction site on the night of Rosie's murder, but that Ames did not press charges against Nowak.

The officer adds that Nowak's reason for the break-in was not construction related, noting that Nowak works for Janek Kovarsky. Holder meets with Linden during visiting hours and briefs her on the latest developments in the case. Dazed, Linden keeps mentioning. Holder vows to get her out, he finds Joseph Nowak at a lumber yard and chases him down, demanding to know about the waterfront activity that night. Holder meets Carlson to tell him "all our players" are involved in the murder: Nowak was at the mayor's construction site to bury native-American bones, his arrest prompted a meeting between Ames, Chief Jackson and Mayor Adams. Rosie was killed. Holder demands. Gwen tells Richmond, he asks why she met with Mayor Adams and she says she planned to blackmail him about kissing her when she was underage. Richmond comforts her, she hands a man an envelope out her car window, congratulating him on his work on the video. Talking with Dr. Kerry, Linden expresses doubts about the father's arrest in the previous murder.

Kerry mentions Linden's mother, who abandoned her at age five, Linden insists she is fine. Kerry points out that her son is gone and she was supposed to be married a few days ago. A hospital worker interrupts to say. In the waiting room, Linden's fiancé, Dr. Rick Felder, Linden's psychiatrist, tells Holder he will release Sarah, but cannot be involved any further. Linden sees Rick from an adjacent room, but he leaves. Holder drives. At the casino, Chief Jackson tells someone on her phone.

After the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941, Seetzen was commander of Sonderkommando 10a, which followed Army Group South and was responsible for mass killings in the south of the Soviet Union. Austrian police officer Robert Barth, an accomplice in the mass murder, said about Seetzen: "A brutal Kommandoführer, he is said to have boasted. I was told that, at his command, once the ammunition for the shootings of Jews ran out, the Jews were cast alive into a well with a depth of 30 meters."From 28 April to August 1944, he served as commander of Einsatzgruppe B, which perpetrated mass murder in Belarus.

After the war, Seetzen stayed with a female acquaintance, hiding his identity by using the false name "Michael Gollwitzer", his acquaintance reported that Seetzen was remorseful and finished from a moral perspective.

He told her "that he was burdened by guilt, that he was a criminal, that he had forfeited his life." He openly admitted that he would commit suicide by taking potassium cyanide the moment he was captured. After his arrest by the British military police in Hamburg-Blankenese on 28 September 1945, Seetzen committed suicide using a cyanide capsule, he was not identified and was buried as "Michael Gollwitzer". Due to this fact, a Denazification Court classified Seetzen as a "lesser offender" in 1949, adding the stipulation, "in the event that the person concerned is still alive". Lawrence D.
