This Day in Georgia History

November 06, 1895

Attendance Jump at Cotton States Expo

The Cotton States and International Exposition experienced an unexpected and inexplicable jump in attendance. Some 40,000 people came out to see the exhibits and festivities. This was nearly double the previous average attendance and more than any other day to that point except President’s Day, Liberty Bell Day, and Atlanta Day. The crowds would continue to pour in as Georgia Day approached on November 19.
