The Civil War in Georgia Commemorating 150 years Civil War Georgia Sesquicentennial

About Us

Georgia's Civil War Sesquicentennial website was created by The Tourism Division of the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) as part of the state's efforts to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
  1. The purpose of this website is twofold:
  2. To facilitate and promote an understanding of the Civil War and Georgia's role in it, as well as to promote heritage tourism that will inspire people to visit Georgia's Civil War historic sites and attractions.
  3. To serve as an online portal for communities and Civil War organizations in Georgia to promote their Civil War commemoration activities and events on one comprehensive site.
The Georgia Tourism division is proud to partner with the Georgia Civil War Commission, Georgia Humanities Council, Georgia Historical Society, the Tri-State Civil War 150th Association and many other entities in Georgia to broaden people's understanding of the Civil War and Georgia's pivotal role in it, and also to increase the number of heritage travelers during this five-year commemoration and beyond.
