The Cherokee Georgian. January 11, 1867
Colonel J. A. R. Hanks founded the Cherokee Georgian in October 1865 in Dalton, Georgia. Politically, the paper began as a Democratic and anti-reconstruction publication. Hanks managed the Georgian for two years before selling out to Coolidge and Harben in September of 1867, when paper’s masthead became the North Georgia Republican. The new owners were loosely Republicans based on their support for federal reconstruction in the state. Despite the paper’s moderately republican tone, the editors of the Weekly Georgia Telegraph lamented that the Dalton newspaper “has been bought out by the Radicals” in their September 27, 1867 issue. Unable to gain local support, the Republican ceased publication before the end of 1868.
