Union County was carved from Cherokee County territory during the Georgia Land Lottery of 1832. Originally inhabited by Native Americans, the area became more desirable to white settlers with the discovery of gold in the 1820’s.

The Union Party, a political group that supported removing the Indians and opening the area to white settlers, is the probable inspiration for the county’s name. Since it was founded almost 30 years before the Civil War, Union County obviously wasn’t named in sympathy for the North as is sometimes mistaken.

Interestingly, though, prior to the Civil War, the county’s residents were largely pro-Union and the county delegates to the state convention of 1861 voted against secession. When the state seceded, however, the majority of Union County residents supported the Confederacy, though some fought and died for the Union

The county seat is Blairsville, Georgia.
