Verdery's Territory, later known as the Negro Territory, but most commonly referred to as "the Terry", was a neighborhood in southern part of the city of Augusta, Georgia. Originally a predominantly Irish community, the Freedman's Bureau relocated emancipated blacks in to the neighborhood after the American Civil War. By the middle of the 20th century, the Terry was home to the majority of Augusta's black citizens.
The Terry in Southern VictoryEdit
The Terry was the colored district in Augusta, Georgia. Scipio and his family resided in the Terry throughout the 1930s. It was completely cleaned out by the Freedom Party in 1943, and its residents largely became victims of the Population Reduction.
