    I just read Lora Homeyer's "The Fourth State" about Georgia. There was an error in the "Be Prepared" section: There is no organization named Girl Scouts of America. I'm sure she meant to refer to the Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. – that's the organization that Juliette Gordon Low founded in Savannah on March 12, 1912.
