This Day in Georgia History

September 19, 1895

Chickamauga National Battlefield Dedicated

Dedication ceremonies were held for the Chickamauga National Battlefield in extreme northwest Georgia. Because thousands of Civil War veterans were expected to attend that event, organizers of the Cotton States and International Exposition in Atlanta designated Sept. 21st as Blue and Gray Day.
