Published by JG Evans of Atlanta. Hand written "No. 7 N. Wing M. B. From the East." This exposition and World's Fair became known as the Code of 1882. Significant of Georgia s rehabilitation from the ravages of Civil war was an event which occurred during Governor Colquitt s administration the great International Cotton Exposition of 1881. For a city of only 50,000 inhabitants to inaugurate the first world's fair ever held in the South and to carry forward such an enterprise to a most successful climax is an achievement little short of miraculous especially when remember that only sixteen short years before this time Atlanta was a mass of smoldering ruins in the wake of Sherman s destructive march to the sea. One of the most interested of all the visitors to this exposition was the grim despoiler himself Gen William Tecumseh Sherman But he was most warmly and graciously received.
