Situated on the iconic Chattahoochee River banks, Columbus, Georgia, has an enduring history and place in the American South. Produced and published by one of the most prominent cartographers of the nineteenth century, Henry Wellge, this stunning birds-eye perspective allows the viewer a unique glimpse into the past with its distinctive style and attention to detail. At the Southwest border with Alabama Muscogee County, the region has been a significant driver for Georgia’s economy since its founding in 1828. By the latter portion of the nineteenth century, the agricultural economy had been replaced by textile and manufacturing jobs, earning it the nickname “Lowell of the South.”
Its proximity to the Chattahoochee River allowed it to export agricultural goods and manufactured commodities to the Gulf of Mexico, where they were then shipped to New Orleans for international export. The establishment of Fort Benning in the years following the conclusion of the Civil War also spurred on the local economy. Wellge’s career spanned more than five decades, and he is one of five cartographers credited with producing more than half of all birds-eye perspectives in the Library of Congress. Though he was based in Wisconsin, his depictions range from Maine to Texas.
Like much of the nation, Columbus was experiencing a boom of prosperity in the late nineteenth century as the United States entered the so-called ‘Gilded Age.’ Immigrants flocked to cities across the nation, establishing communities based on cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
