Georgia Day

For 100 consecutive years, the John Clarke Chapter, NSDAR and the James M. Gresham Chapter 1312, United Daughters of the Confederacy have hosted Georgia Day programs in Social Circle. On alternate years, each organization provides a program to commemorate Georgia History. On February 7, 2019, the John Clarke Chapter hosted the event at historic Gunter Hall. Featured guest speaker, Carter Wood presented a dual program on both Georgia history and the spy network of General George Washington. The first program highlighted the Battle of Kettle Creek in Wilkes County, Georgia in 1779 and the other program featured Washington’s Secret Six. Mr. Wood is the President of the Lyman Hall Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution located in Gainesville, Ga. Pictured are chapter members posed with Mr. Wood.
