Soldiers would pass through Lawrenceville on their way to battles Bring your family to learn who were the Ezzard’s, Monfort’s, Jordan’s and Maltbie’s and their impact in the Lawrenceville community. Our County and Country also had many interesting facts and stories that tie in at the same time as Lawrenceville see how they had a role in the city’s creation.
