Georgia Military College To Join Governor Sonny Perdue In Georgia Day Proclamation Ceremony

February 10, 2003 – On February 12, 1733, General James D. Oglethorpe founded the colony of Georgia at Yamacraw Bluff, near present-day Savannah. This event officially began the settlement of the last thirteen British colonies in North America and marked the territory that would eventually become the State of Georgia. To promote greater awareness of this historic moment, Georgia Military College is proud, once again, to provide the Governor with a formal ceremony for the public signing of the Georgia Day Proclamation. The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, February 12, 2003 in the North Wing of the Capitol Rotunda in Atlanta beginning at 12:00 noon and will last approximately 15 minutes. Participating in this official ceremony with Governor Perdue will be MG Peter Boylan, President of Georgia Military College; the GMC eighth grade class; the GMC High School Marching Band; the GMC Junior College Color Guard and Drill Team; the Junior College Regimental Commander, and Regimental Staff of the 123rd Corps of Cadets. The public is invited to attend.
