Ezekiel Salter scrimps to buy a ticket in Georgia’s 1807 Land Lottery, wins, and he and his impoverished family head west to newlycreated Murcheson County.
Prominent since colonial times, the Underwoods foresee the growing demand for cotton and acquire extensive acreage in newlyopened lands in central Georgia. Dispatched by his father, Jacob Underwood begins construction of Poplar Grove plantation.
And, the slave known as Gant, his wife and daughter, Lucey, have no say as to their destination…the highest bidder will decide for them…and if the family remains intact.
