This Day in Georgia History

July 22, 1964

“Georgia Day” at World’s Fair

This was “Georgia Day” at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City. Among a full day of events, Gov. Carl Sanders participated in unveiling ceremonies for a plaque at the display of the famous Civil War locomotive “The General,” which had traveled to New York for the World’s Fair. In response to questions from reporters, Gov. Sanders incorrectly predicted that Georgia would support Lyndon Johnson in the 1964 presidential election.
