Rome Tri-Weekly Courier, March 4, 1869: "The members of the Oostanaula Base Ball Club are requested to meet at the city hall on Friday evening next..." signed Ed Shropshire, VP.

Same May 6, 1869 "The young men of our town have organized a club for base ball playing." A practice will take place next Saturday.

Oostanaula is the name of the local river. The VP is probably Edward F. Shropshire (1843-1920), a Confederate army veteran who later moved to Atlanta.
