ABOUT HOUSE DISTRICT 138
State House District 138 stretches from Lake Blackshear on the Flint River northwest to the banks of the Chattahoochee River and the Alabama border. It totals approximately 1,080 square miles and covers Sumter, Schley, Marion and Chattahoochee Counties, including the cities of Americus, Buena Vista, Ellaville, Cusseta, Plains, Andersonville, and Tazewell.
It is home to Fort Benning, the National Prisoner of War Museum, Habitat for Humanity International, and over 53,000 Georgians. It is the birthplace of a President of the United States, a U.S. Attorney General, a Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, and arguably the greatest baseball player who ever lived.
It is a place where Charles Lindbergh learned to fly - on a tiny airstrip that just happens to be the oldest continuously operating civilian airport in the United States. And it is also a place where Martin Luther King, Jr. was jailed during the height of the civil rights struggle.
