The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum Celebrates the 146th Anniversary of the “GREAT LOCOMOTIVE CHASE”

To commemorate the 146th anniversary of the Great Locomotive Chase, there will be local Historians and Railroaders to entertain and educate Cyclorama visitors.

The Atlanta Cyclorama, is home of the Locomotive TEXAS. On April 12, 1862, the Locomotive TEXAS, manned by an Atlanta train crew, chased and caught the locomotive GENERAL that had been stolen by Union soldiers and spies. This 70 mile epic melodrama has been the subject of many books, TV programs and movies.
