Abstract

This article focuses on former President Jimmy Carter's genealogy. It debunks the myth of the 1976 presidential campaign, chiseling away at the statue of the simple peanut farmer whose American roots took hold when a British indentured servant sold himself for transportation to the Virginia colony. Illustrated clearly is the importance of family history to Jimmy Carter. Framing the Carter family's story within the larger context of Georgia history, the author narrates its passage from Kindred Carter's first steps on Georgian soil to Jimmy Carter's wanderings through the woods surrounding his hometown.
