Worth County was organized in 1853 from land formerly in Dooly and Irwin counties. It is named for Major General William J. Worth, a commander in the Mexican War. William A. Harris who helped organize the new county had served under him. The oldest military road in Georgia, the Thigpen Trail, led through Worth County from the Broad River in South Carolina to the Gulf of Mexico following the divide above the Chattahoochee
