Opening on Sept. 18, 1895, the Atlanta Cotton States and International Exposition attracted throngs of visitors to the city and generated national and international press attention. Just 31 years after Atlanta burned, the exposition catapulted the city into the limelight as never before.

“The Cotton States Exposition did what [organizers] had hoped in terms of shaping the city’s image as a progressive leader of the New South,” says Theda Perdue, author of the just released book “Race and the Atlanta Cotton States Exposition of 1895” (University of Georgia Press).
