Sandra Malecki, a resident of Fannin County, Ga., and a history enthusiast, contacted me through the website.  She is eager to see that the Georgia Battalion receives recognition in both Georgia and Texas.  She is particularly interested in having a commemorative ceremony for those of the Georgia Battalion who died in the Goliad Massacre.  We maintain a steady correspondence regarding several aspects of the Battlion’s history–monuments, historical markers, the Troutman flag, and the negotiations between the states of Georgia and Texas in 1857 about a monument to the Georgia Battalion at Goliad.
