How Far From Campagne to ...

We spend a lot of time looking through Gazetteers & Almanacs that were published in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Many of the Gazetteers include the distance from a community such as Campagne to various places of note, such as the White House.

With a nod to our favorite Gazetteers and using the location of where the historic<5> community of Campagne once stood, the straight-line distance beginning in Campagne and extending to:

  • View Our List ...
    • Hiawassee, which is the Seat of Towns County and lies just to the East Southeast.
    • Atlanta, which is the State Capital of Georgia, lies 90 miles [144.8 km]<1> to the south southwest (SSW). If you could drive a straight line from Campagne to Atlanta, with an average speed<6>of 63 miles [101.4 km] per hour, it would take less than two hours to make the trip. A comfortable walk of 2.2 miles [3.5 km] per hour would take 6 days. A horse and buggy averaging 3.2 miles [5.1 km] per hour would take most of three days.
    • The White House (Washington, DC) is 461 miles [741.9 km] to the northeast (NE). Driving would take most of a day, a buggy would take 18 days and walking would take 27 days.

Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Campagne) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Campagne. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 34.9779, Longitude: -83.8174       In this case, the coordinates for Campagne have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>The Find-a-Grave website is an excellent research tool with information about a cemetery's location and interments. They also offer a forum for their members which can provide additional help. More information about Find-a-Grave can be found on their website: findagrave.com.
<5>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 Campagne, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<6>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
<7>The shortest line can be visualized by stretching a string on a Globe from Point A to Point B - this is known as a Great Circle Route. Where you might expect the shortest route from Campagne to the Middle East to be East and South, the Great Circle Route actually lies to the North and East.
<8>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Jerusalem is 311.959 degrees.
<9>The calculated bearing (or angle) to Mecca is 307.512 degrees.
<10>The calculated bearing (or angle) to the Vatican is 308.753 degrees.
