Douglas County

Douglas County was pieced together from Carroll and old Campbell counties plus a small section of what was originally Cherokee County. Its creation dates to 1870. Both the county and its seat of government, Douglasville, are named for Stephen A. Douglas, Abraham Lincoln's rival. Douglas had chosen a Georgian as his running mate.
