The Georgia Historical Marker Program: A Webinar for Affiliates

Thursday, Feb 25, 2021
1:00 pm

GHS is pleased to introduce a new series of webinars for its Affiliate Chapters. Focusing on issues facing local history organizations across Georgia during the current period of economic and social upheaval, this series of virtual sessions will include resources, strategies, and a forum for discussion among GHS Affiliate members.

Join GHS Marker Manager Elyse Butler as we explore the Georgia Historical Marker Program. Using historical markers that illustrate the Georgia History Festival theme, Tear Down This Wall: Georgia in Cold War America, participants will explore how local stories can be used to illustrate larger statewide and national narratives. Participants will also explore how to develop a successful marker application, with an emphasis on events and topics within the twentieth century.

This event is open to current GHS Affiliate Chapter members and is free, but registration is required.

Please contact Sheila Boone at sboone@georgiahistory.com for more information.
