Coweta County

Coweta County is named for a Lower Creek Indian tribe, the Cowetas. A treaty in 1825 ceded land for this county and, subsequently, for Heard and Campbell counties. Campbell was absorbed by Fulton County during the Great Depression. Newnan, the county seat, bears the name of another Indian fighter, General Daniel Newnan.
