    ATLANTA - Exciting adventures await on the next “Georgia’s Hidden Treasures.” Channel 2 Action News anchors Jovita Moore and Justin Farmer give viewers an in-depth look at the fascinating stories of three Georgia men who changed history tonight on WSB-TV at 8 p.m.

    Channel 2 first explores the Herndon Home and tells the story of Alonzo Herndon, a slave who became Atlanta’s first black millionaire. Farmer talks with Adam Herndon, the great great nephew of Alonzo. He wrote a new children’s book based on Alonzo’s incredible story of accomplishment when the odds were stacked against him.

    Then Channel 2 heads to Griffin to discover little known stories about Doc Holliday, the legendary gambler, gunfighter and friend of Wyatt Earp. There have been countless movie versions of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Most people don’t know this Holliday was born right here in Georgia or that he was a dentist. Channel 2 reveals his connection to one of the South’s most beloved stories, “Gone With The Wind.”
