Notes: Founded as a semi-monthly by J. W. and W. S. Jones in Augusta in 1843, the Southern Cultivator was "devoted to southern agriculture, designed to improve the mind and elevate the character of the tillers of the soil, and to introduce a more enlightened system of culture." It moved to Athens after the war, and then to Atlanta, changing its frequency of issue, absorbing a number of other farm journals, and adding the title of one of them, the Dixie Farmer, to its own in 1886.
