←— 1 bl. —?In 1854, Lazarus Strauss brought his wife and four children to Talbotton to their first home in America. Here he established a store, the first in a series that led to Macy's, one of the leading department stores in the world. Straus and his sons, Isidor, Nathan, and Oscar, are among those men in American Jewry of whom all Jews are most proud. Isidor as a merchant, Nathan as a pioneer in public health, Oscar as one of the earlier career diplomats, and all as philanthropists and patriots, have won national acclaim.
