This Day in Georgia History

November 25, 1979

Wagon Train to Piedmont Park

The wagon train bearing gold to regild Georgia’s state capitol dome [see Nov. 23 entry] arrived in Atlanta on a rainy afternoon. Like its predecessor in 1958, the 1979 wagon train proceeded to Piedmont Park to spend the night.
