Coffee County drew its territory from parts of Clinch, Irwin, Telfair and Ware counties in 1854. General John Coffee, an Indian fight­er, is honored with its naming. Douglas, the county seat, is named for Stephen A. Douglas, the Democrat who unsuccessfully opposed Abraham Lincoln in the pivotal 1860 election.
