This Day in Georgia History

October 01, 1918

WWI Parade in Atlanta

A parade was held in downtown Atlanta with a two-fold purpose. First, a silent tribute was paid to the many Georgians who had died in World War I. Second, organizers hoped to rally support for those still fighting as the allied armies were surrounding Germany near the end of the war.
