Historic Agency Releases Horace King Book The Historic Commission (HCC) announces the release of its 28th book, Bridging Deep South Rivers: the Life and Legend of Horace King by Jolm S. Lupold and Thomas L French, Jr. With this biography, the HCC continues its fine tradi- ti_on of publishing books that focus on the history, art, architecture, archaeology travel industry in the Chattahoochee Valley of Alabama and Georgia. The Commission's first book.was published by the University of Alabama Press in 1975. Published for the HCC and the Troup County Historical Society by the University of Georgia Press, Bridging Deep South Rivers is the result of detailed research which'...penetrates the myths and hearsay to at last give a true picture of the architect and engineer whose covered wooden spans bridged the Deep South. Horace King built cov- ered bridges over every large river in the South from Georgia through Alabama to eastern Mississippi. That King, who began life as a slave in Chexaw, South Ca~lina, received no formal training makes his story all the more remarkable. This is the first major biography of the gifted archi- tect and engineer who used his skills to transcend the lim- its of slavery and segregation and become a successful entrepreneur and builder. Lupold and French add considerably to our knowl- edge of a'man whose accom- plishments demand wider recognition. As a slave and then as a freedman, Kingbuilt bridges, courthouses, warehouses, factories and houses in the three-state area. The authors separate leg- end from facts as they care- fully document King's life in the Chattahoochee Valley on the Georgia- Alabamaborder. We learn about King's freedom from slavery in 1846, his reluctant support of the Confederacy and his two terms in Alabama's Reconstruction legislature. In addition, the biography reveals King's relationship with his fellow (white) con- tractors and investors, espe- ciaUy John Godwin, his mas- ter and business partner, and Robert Jemison, Jr., the Alabama entrepreneur and legislator who helped secure King's freedom, The story does not end with Horace, however, because he passed his skills on to his three sons, who also became prominent builders and businessmen. In King's world few other blacks had his opportunities to excel. King seized on his chances and became the most celebrated bridge builder in the Deep Sout~ The reader comes away from King's story with respect for the man; insight into the problems of financ- ing, b, filding and maintaining covered bridges; and a new sense of how essential bridges were to the southern market economy. Bridging Deep South Rivers is available for pur- chase from the HCC for $29.95 per copy plus $4 for shipping and handling. The hard cover book has 3.52 pages, 71 black and while illustrations and seven maps. Orders may be directed to the Commission at P.O. Box 33, Eufaula, AL 36072-0033 or by. calling 1-877-POOCHIE.
