President Hayes Visited Atlanta

President Rutherford B. Hayes arrived in Atlanta on a good-will trip in an attempt to mend North-South relations after Reconstruction. Hayes became the second sitting president to visit Atlanta (the first being Millard Fillmore, who came in 1854; George Washington had visited Savannah and Augusta).
