Virtual Veterans Day Ceremony.

Each year on Veterans Day, Atlanta History Center hosts a commemoration to honor all veterans who have served and continue to serve in the United States armed forces. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 event was livestreamed at Atlanta History Center. We invite you to remember the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and explore the importance of remembering and preserving Veterans’ stories.
