An Old Time iander rulling.'
Not to go back in history further
than my own time and recollections,
let me venture upon some unoccupied
territory and tell how Cherokee,
Georgia, became the home of that
much-maligned and misunderstood
individual known as the Georgia
cracker. I have lived long in his re
gion and am close akin to him.
There is really but little difference
between the Georgia cracker and the
Alabama or Tennessee cracker. They
all have or had the same origin, and
until the Appalachain range was
openedl up to the rest of mankind by
railroads and the schoolhouse these
crackers had ways and usages and a
language peculiarly their own.
It will be remembered that until
1835 the Cherokee Indians owned
and occupied this region of Georgia
-the portion lying west of the Chat
tahoochee and north of the Tallapoo
sa rivers. They were the most peace
able and civilized of all the tribes,
but they were not subject to Georgia
laws, and had many conflicts and dis
turbances with their white nabors.
It seemed -to be the manifefst destiny
that they should go. "Go west, red
man, "was the white man's fiat. They
went at the point of the bayonet, and
all their beautiful country was sud
denly opened by the ingress of whom
soever might come. Georgia had it
surveyed and divided into lots of
forty and 160 acres, and then made a
lottery and gave every man and wid
ow and orphan child a chance at the
drawing. But the cracker dident
wait for the drawing. The rude, un
tamed and restless people from the
mountain borders of Georgia and the
Carolinas flocked hither to pursue
their wild and fascinating occupation
of hunting and fishing for a liveli
hood. They came separately, but
soon assimilated and shared a com
mon inteiest. There are such spirits
in every community. There are some
right here now who would rather go
up to Cohutta mountains on a bear
hunt thaa to go to New York or Paris
for pleasure. I almost would myself,
and I recall the earnest cravings of
my youth to go west and find a wil
derness, and with my companions live.
in a hut and kill deer and turkeys,
and sometimes a bear and a panther.
But for my town raising and old
field school education I too wQuld
have made a very respectable cracker.
This was the class of young men and
middle-aged that first settled among
these historic bill and valleys and
climbed these mountains and fished
in these streams. By and by the for
tunate owners of these lands received
.their certificates and many of them
came from all parts of the State to
look up their lots and see how much
gold er how much bottom land there
was upon them, but gold was the
principal attraction. The Indians
had found gold and washed it out of
the creeks and branches and tra&d
it in small parcels to the white man,
and it was believed that-every stream
was lined with golden sand. This
proved an illusion, and so the sanat
ters were not disturbed or else they
bought their titles for a song and
then sang "sweet home"~ of their own.
They built their cabins and cleared
their lands and raised their scrub cat
tle, and with their old-fashioned rifies
kept the family in game. Many of
these settlers could read and write,
but in their day there was but little
to read. No newspapers and but few
books were found by the hunter's
friends. Their children grew up the
same way, but what they lacked in cul
ture they supplied in rough experi
ences and hair-breadth. escapes and
fireside talk, and- in the sports that
were either improvised or inherited.
Pony races, gander pullings, shooting
mnatches, coon huntings, and quiltings
had more attraction than books. How
they got to using such twisted lan
guage as you'uns and we'uns and In
guns and mout and gwine and all sich
is not known, nor was such talk un
versal. When such idioms began in
a family they descended and spread out
among the kindred, but it was not
contagious. I know one family
now of very extensive connections
who have a folk-lore of their own, and
it can be traced back to the old an
cestor who died- half a century ago.
But these corruptions of language are
by no means peculiar to the cracker,
for the English cockneys and the gen
uine Yankee have an idiom quite as
eccentric, though they do not realize
it and would not admit it.
The Georgia cracker was a merry
hearted, unconcerned; independent
reature, and -all he asked was to be
let alone by the laws and the outside
The justice court of his beat was
quite enough limitation for him. He
had far more respect for the old spec
taeled "squire than for the highest
court of the nation. From this home
made tribunal he never appealed un
til the young lawyers began to figure
in it, and seduced him into the mys
teries of the law and the wonderful
performances of the writ of "Sashera
ry." Nevertheless they looked upon
lawyers as suspects and pirasites, and
their descendants have the same opin
ion still. The old 'squire was special
ly "fornent" them, and looked upon
the sasherary as an insult to his ju
dicial capacity. Sometimes he would
let two young limbs of the law argue
a case before him for half an hour,
and then quietly remark, "Gentlemen,
I judgmenticated this case last night
at home," and woud proceed with his
docket. That old 'squire and the
preacher were quite enough to pilot
these people through life and across
the dark river.
A few years after they bad settled
down as the successors to the In
dians a class of more substantial cit
izens began to look in upon this beau
tiful country. 'T hey purchased the
valley lands and the river bottoms,'
and soon the forests began to fall be
fre the ax of the pioneers. Some of
them brought slaves with them and:
erected saw mills and framed houses
with glass windows to live in, and the
scool master came along, but the
crackers were in the majority and
lved along in the same old primitive
ay. As late as 1847 they had gan
ae plngne and one that I witnessed
that summer lasted for two hours and
the original Bill Arp was the victor.
I could have seen more of them, but
I did not care to, just for the same
reason that a kind-hearted man does
not wish to see but one hanging.
One Saturday morning when we ar
rived at Blue Gizzard ccurtgrouud,
the clans had gathered in unusual
force. As preliminary to the more
important contest that was soon to
come off, some of the boys were
shooting at a small piece of white pa
per that was pinned to a distant tree.
Some were gathered around the
spring. Some were trying old moth
er Tutton's fresh cider and ginger
cakes that she offered from the hind
gate of her little wagon, and some I
were sampling the corn whisky that I
was kept in a jug in the little log i
court house hard by. We soon per
ceived the central and most attractive
spot to be a small tree with a limb I
forking about ten feet from its base. <
A long, slender, springy pole was i
resting in the fork with the large end i
pressed to the ground and fastened
with stobs crossed on either side and
driven firmly in the clay. This in
cline raised the long end of the pole I
quite high in the air, and to that end i
was looped a plow line, and to the i
lower end of the line another loop I
was slipped over the crimson feet of i
a venerable gander and left him <
swinging, head downwards, just high i
enough for a horseman to reach it I
easily as he rode underneath. The
doomed bird gave an occasional 4
squawk, and, with wings half open
and neck half bent, looked with un- I
questioned alarm upon the proceed- i
ings. The feathers had been strip- I
ped from its neck and a thick coat of
grease put on instead. The under- I
growth had been removed and a run
ning path for. the horsemen carefully i
cleared of all obstructions. The
tournament began at 11 o'clock.
Twenty sovereigns, mounted on their <
plow nags, ranged themselves at one I
end of the path and awaited the call I
of their names by the old 'squire who i
had them written on a fly-leaf in the 1
back of his docket. No man was al- I
lowed to ride until he had planked 1
up a dollar. The old 'squire had ,
contributed the gander just out of i
good willto the boys, he said, and he
was nominated as treasurer and um
pire and carried the bag, and on his 1
decision the whole sum was to be I
awaided the yictor. He had adjourn- I
ed his court for two hours to see the i
fun and keep down any disturbance 1
of the peace. Eight "whippers" I
were mustered in, four on each side j
of the running course. They were I
all armed with good long switches or
hickorys, and their willing duty was I
to see to it that no man's nag moved j
towards the gander with less alacrity .
than a gallop. "Now, boys," said he,
"not a lope that would- keep a nag I
a-loping half an hour in the shade of I
a tree, but a right lively gallop, and
if the critter slows up any, you must
peartin him up a litle--especially as I
he's nighin' toward the gander." i
The boys were true sovereigns.
They were not knights. They were<
arrayed in their home-made pants
and home-made shirts and home-knit
galluses. Their shoes were made at
the tannery and their hats at the hat- I
tery. Coats and vests were not on
their regalia. All the naborhood were t
their spectators including many wo
men, some with infants at the breast
and some with sons in the tourna- I
The gathering people exchanged s
salutations and smiles and gave the<
family news and gradually drew near
the place where the anserian strug
gle was impending.
The old 'squire had participated in a
some old-fashioned musters in his day, r
and so, when everything was ready
he stood on a log and, raising his
right hand, exclaimed: "'Tention
company! In~ the proceedings that.
we are about to proceed with it are 1
expected that every man will conductv
bis behavior accordin' to what's fair f
and honest-no man are to take any
disadvantage of ary other man nor of
the gander. Thar he are hangin' j
without a friend. Tote fair boys, r
tote fair; and put him out of misery ~
as quick as you ken, in reason. Jack ~
Pullm-three paces to the front- a
As Jack stuck his heels in his po- c
ny's flank the crowd shouted: "Charge
'em Jack ! Charge 'em !" But Jack's c
ritter wasent used to charging. He a
rebelled at the go and the "whippers ~
in" had to come to his support. He
dashed i~i and out of the path wildly, a
but finally took the bit in his teeth
and started down the line on a des
perate run for freedom amid the
shouts and cheers of the multitude.
He steered well until he suddenly c
eyed the great white bird just ahead 1;
of him. He stopped as if on the
brink of a precipice, but Jack went
on. That capped the climax of tu
multuous hilarity. The like of that
was what they came for. Jack caught
on his hands and feet, and was soon S
remounted and took another start,
and his nog behaved better, but still v
did not come in reach of the gander, y
and jack lost his chance until the sec
ond grand round. "We'uns haint g
got no geese at our house," gaid he, t
"and my animal never seed one afore b
as I knows on."
"Samuel Swillin, to the front," call
ed the 'squire. "Ready, aim, charge."
Sam's critter was more tractable and
Sam got a fair grab, but the grease
was too slick for him, and as he slip- I
ped his hold the poor bird swung to
and fro and flapped his wings and a
squawked loud and long at the terri- f
ble squeeze and the more terrible
elongation of his oesophagus. Sam r
was congratulated on his effort. He
wiped his fingers on a pine top, and t
said: "Yes I'll be dadburned if I a
wouldent have got him, but the dingd
thing was so allfired slickery. I was C
in hopes that Jack Pullam wouldC
ave got the fust grab and sleeked
offen some of it."
"Rube Underwood"-to the front- .
ready-aim-charge. Rube had as
big mouth and was freckle faced and 9
red headed, and rode a flee-bitten
gray that had been taught to dance t
and prance around and to go side- v
ways-"jest to show smart," as the 1
boys said-and it took the animal
sometime to be convinced that dane
ing and prancing wasn't in order atr
this particular time. A wolloping
lick as he neared the goal caused him I
to make a fearful leap right under
the bird, and as Rube had to use
both hands to hold his seat the gan
der's head collided square in Rube'sy
face and some swore got in his mouth I
and "effen he had jest. shet it he
would Lave had the prize." He rc
tired in good order and tiwaited his
econd turn. Oue lby one the riders
-ame as they were called. One afb r
mother got soile of the grease anl
viped it on their horses' manes, but
lhe muscles of the gaud]er were old
md tough, and every one of the
:wenty had gone his round and failed,
vhen the 'squire called a halt and
>rdered another greasing.
It was evident, however that some
lamage had been done the bird, for
iis wings hung droopy and his voice
vas failing him. There was a lacera
ion of sinews going on, and but for
he fresh greasing the sport would
iave soon ended. "'Tention, com
)any," said the 'squire. "The pro
,eedinses will now take a little recess.
3oys, you can light and look at your
addles, and ef you want water you
;in go to the spring and git it, but
Ion't wait long for my old gander
re bangin' there without a friend
The tournament was soon resumed.
3ill Arp was the tenth man of the
econd round. He was the tenth of
he first, and many predicted then
hat he would break the gander's
ieck or the plow line or the pole, for
us grip was like a vise and his agili
y notorious, but somehow the gan
ler ducked at the critical moment
Lnd Bill grapped his head instead of
iis neck and -made a miscarriage.
As Bill's turn came again the crowd
ijaculated: "Now, watch him boys."
'Can't he ride, though?" "See how
ie sots on his critter." "Blamed if he
dn't tarred to his nag." "Look at
iis eye." "No whippers for him."
'He's a gwine to carry that gander's
iead a half a mile before he stops."
'Farewell, goose, ri' preach your fu
ieral." "Good-bye gander."
And sure enough Bill got the right
rip this time and in a trice had giv
,n the neck a double and something
lad to break the pole and the
ine swiftly followed his motion. For
6 moment it seemed uncertain what
vould break or what had broken for
he strained tendons popped like a
vhip as Bill's nag went on at full
peed. For a little while the quiver
ng, headless body swung backwards
nd forwards and was then at rest.
Chen came the shouts and the wild
iurrab. Bill was game and so was
iis critter, and as they came round to
he front the crowd gathered round
o see the gander's head that he held
igh in his hand-the warm blood
rickling from the arteries. After the
ubilee was over Bill invited the nine
een and the 'squire to old Mother
Cutton's wagon, and having purchased
ier stock of cakes and cider and the
ug in the court house he "gin 'em all
treat." There was not a fight nor
fuss in all the "proceedinses." In a
ew minutes thereafter the voice of
he bailiff was heard crying "Oh yes,
h yes-the honorable court of the
25th deestrict are now met kordin'
o adjournment. God save the State
ud the honorable court."
These i-ough, rude people were the
riginal Georgia crackers. They con
tituted a large proportion of the
>oplation of Cherokee half a century
igo. They were generally poor but
hey enjoyed life more than
noney. They were sociable and
ey were kind. When one of their ~
tumber was sick they nursed him
rhen he died they dug a grave and
