If in Rome (Ga.), share your stories

Rome, Ga., including Fort Norton, saw its share of action during the Civil War before its capture in May 1864.

The Greater Rome Convention & Visitors Bureau (GRCVB) has partnered with the Rome- Floyd County Library to record a oral history of county residents.

Stories, both spoken and written, will be posted on a Civil War heritage website.

According to a statement, stories should relate to Rome or Floyd County in some way. Stories may reflect an ancestor’s involvement in the war, military action within the county or life during and after the war.

Oral stories stories can be recorded at the libary on Feb. 17 and 24 from 9 a.m. to 11a.m. Written stories should be less than 1,000 words. Stories may be submitted to

For information, call 706-295-5576.
