Berrien County

Berrien County was organized in 1856 from parts of Coffee, Irwin and Lowndes counties. The last skirmish with Creek Indians had been fought 20 years earlier in its territory. Its name was chosen to honor John MacPherson Berrien, U. S. senator from Georgia and President Andrew Jackson's attorney general. Nashville is named for General Francis Nash, distinguished soldier of the Revolutionary War.
