Omaha, Georgia

Located near the Chattahoochee River, Omaha is a community with lots of history. If you’re in the area, it’s worth a visit. An interesting bit of trivia: It was mentioned as the location of a fictional lynching in James Joyce’s masterpiece, Ulysses. Hanging over the bloody paper with Alf looking for spicy bits instead of attending to the general public. Picture of a butting match, trying to crack their bloody skulls, one chap going for the other with his head down like a bull at a gate. And another one: Black Beast Burned in Omaha, Ga. A lot of Deadwood Dicks in slouch hats and they firing at a Sambo strung up in a tree with his tongue out and a bonfire under him. Gob, they ought to drown him in the sea after and electrocute and crucify him to make sure of their job”.

    The extended references to lynchings don’t exactly make me feel welcome.
