Default 1885 Augusta team image - seeking info on early Southern League and Augusta team

Posted By: ramram

I picked up this large albumen cabinet recently which, I believe to be, is the 1885 Augusta team of the Southern League (aka Southern Association). The Southern League began in 1885 and Augusta won the title, albeit, controversially. The League faded away, I believe, in 1886 before returning in later years. I don't know much else about this team or league. This is the first photo I've seen from this league. Does anybody know any other information about this team or league??

I've written a couple of books on the Civil War and have made some good friends at the Augusta Museum of History. They're very good...I'll bet they may be able to help you out. Here's a link to the site:
