County History: Sumter County was created from Lee County on Dec. 26, 1831, by an act of the General Assembly (Ga. Laws 1831, p. 76). In 1857, portions of Sumter County were used to create Schley County (Ga. Laws 1857, p. 42).

Georgia's 80th county was named Gen. Thomas Sumter (1734-1832), who at the time of the county's creation was 97 years of age and the last surviving general officer of the American Revolution.
