GHS Dedicates Secession Convention Marker

As part of the national sesquicentennial commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the Georgia Historical Society, the Georgia Department of Economic Development and other state and private agencies are collaborating on a project to use historical markers to promote tourism and create better access to Georgia’s Civil War history. On January 19, 2011, the Society dedicated a new marker in Milledgeville that describes the Secession Convention of January 1861.
