Forsyth was created on December 3, 1832 from Cherokee and Lumpkin counties.
Facts about John Forsyth: In 1828 urged the Georgia General Assembly to extend Georgia law across the Cherokee Nation without the cession of the land by the Cherokee Nation. In 1833, after the county had been created, Forsyth took a pro-Union stand during the Nullifcation Crisis, although he was stridently anti-tariff -- this had him quite put out by John Berrien and Augustin Clayton.
Forsyth was a major foot path into North Georgia - a trading path to the Cherokee Nation ran through the present day boundaries of the county as early as 1731. Other Notable Items in re to Forsyth - The James Vann Tavern in the early 1800's was on the Old Federal Highway which is in present day Forsyth County - the tavern now sits at the former capital of the Cherokee Nation, New Echota. Please read more History at the Archives of Forsyth County, Georgia - Roadside Georgia Website.
