Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Fort Gaines, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance beginning in Fort Gaines. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Fort Gaines) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Fort Gaines. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Fort Gaines
