 Each Georgia County is divided into Georgia Militia Districts (called GMD's, even now). In the old days there was a sometimes elected, sometimes appointed,

Militia Captain (or other rank) with lesser officers under him responsible for raising the eligible men from his district, giving them a few days training each year,

and leading them off to fight the Creeks, or whoever, if the Governor so ordered.
