The Old Guard of the Gate City Guard Exhibit Open in May 2011

The first of many events designed by the Southern Museum to commemorate and explore topics relevant to the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War will be The Old Guard of the Gate City Guard; a new temporary exhibition located in the Cobb Energy Gallery. The original Gate City Guard was one of the first military units to respond to the call for arms in defense of Georgia. This exhibit is being produced in collaboration with the Old Guard of the Gate City Guard of Atlanta, Inc., State Bank & Trust Company, Kennesaw Museum Foundation and the Southern Museum. The gallery will be open to the public from May 28, 2011 until October 16, 2011.
