The Colonel Daniel Appling Sword has been purchased and returned to Georgia. We are too late to assist in the purchase. However, there are still some funds that need to be raised. The sword and scabbard need to be rehabilitated. There is also a need for an appropriate display case in the State Capitol. The Appling County Heritage Center would like to get involved. If we can collect $1,000.00 our name will appear on the plaque accompanying the sword. We need your help in order to raise this money.
