Description: 888 The Old War Horse Captured in Battle

View of a "The General" a locomotive train that ran on the Western and Atlantic Railroad in Georgia that was captured by Union spies during the Civil War being shown during the Cotton States and International Exposition in Piedmont Park near Atlanta, Georgia.

The Cotton States and International Exposition was an event that took place during the fall of 1895 in Piedmont Park just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. The Exposition was meant to foster trade between southern states and South American nations and to exhibit the resources of the region to the world. In 1904, the city of Atlanta purchased Piedmont Park from the Piedmont Park Exposition Company and extended the city limits north to include the park.
