Texte du rabat

Some of these events were high drama: fisticuffs during a prohibition debate, Eugene Talmadge's strong-arm eviction of the state treasurer from the statehouse, the Three Governors Controversy, and an African American protest in the segregated cafeteria. From the laying of the cornerstone in 1885 to the present, successive generations of Georgians have created a distinctive history in and around the Capitol as they have exercised, or sought to gain, their rights. Today the Georgia Capitol remains a working center of state government, and its history continues to unfold.

Résumé
The Georgia Capitol is a place where legislators have debated, governors have proclaimed, and courts have ruled. This is the history of the Georgia Capitol which not only pays tribute to a grand old edifice but also recounts the history that was made within and without its walls.
