It is tough loosing your land to the Feds. If these people can get their land back at Harris Neck from the Feds then I would like our family lands back from the Feds at Fort Stewart. Ever heard of Willy Georgia? Only a sign on 119 going to Ft. Stewart to identify a communty wiped out by the Feds. Yes, I am still @#** off about it.

I hate seeing anyone tossed for the greater good of the government without fair compensation.At this point in time the land is to valuable as a wild life refuge to give it to anyone.I would say any of the surviving owners should be taken care of.

I can't even post on this subject without sounding

bias.
There is a reason it's still a NWR. Several courts have done their job.

I agree with you. I would like to have my Grand Dads land back from Ft. Stewart too. Give our families back the land around Pineview Lake area. It was worth a whole lot more than they paid for it!!! I have a map showing who owned every lot of land before the FEDS stole it from them.

Folks,

THere are two sides (at least) to this story. There is also a lot of misrepresentation of the facts within the stories of the displaced families. A good source of information on the full story is at this link:
http://www.coastalrefuges.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1254298

Sam Nunn called for a GAO study that was published in 1985 and it is probably the most definitive document on the disputed property. There is a link to this study at the link above and if it isn't available, send me a PM and I can email the study to you.
I've added a fact sheet that explains a lot of the misinformation involved in this episode.

perryrip, et. al,

Thanks for that additional info. I have used it to develop a rebuttal that I've sent to the AJC.

My first thoughts when I heard about this a few years back was that if you were going to give it to the descendant's of the original owners, would that not be the plantation owners who had it confiscated in 1865? The document you linked to i very informative!

I had thought it was a dead issue until I read Mr. Galloway's opinion in the AJC.

Camohead,

It won't be a dead issue while descendants of the families still live down there on Harris Neck Road. They have nothing to lose by keeping their story propped up with mistatements and half truths. In the world of politics and hype there's always a chance they could get some some idiot in Congress to sponsor a bill to reinstate the disputed lands to them. I was leaning torward their cause until I did a little research and heard the other side of the story. Think of the precedent it would set if legislation was proposed and passed by Congress. Where would it stop? I could even see Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson down there protesting at entrance to the Wildlife Refuge if there weren't sand gnats and mosquitoes, and Jerome of the Old School Diner would give them free food.
