GMC to host Georgia Day Proclamation Ceremony

GMC to host Georgia Day Proclamation Ceremony

General James Edward Oglethorpe founded the Colony of Georgia at Yamacraw Bluff, near the present-day Savannah, on February 12, 1733.  This event officially began the settlement of the last of the 13 original British colonies in North America.  This territory would eventually become the State of Georgia.

To promote greater awareness of this historic moment, for more than 30 years, Georgia Military College has hosted a formal ceremony for the public signing of the Georgia Day Proclamation.  The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 in the North Wing of the Capitol Rotunda in Atlanta beginning at 1:30 p.m. and will last approximately 15 minutes.
