Known As the First City to Record an Observance of Memorial Day
Kingston is a small city (1.2km) in Bartow County nestled between Cartersville and Rome, Georgia with a rich Antebellum History. The city was named after Judge John Pendleton King, a United States Senator from Augusta, Georiga. History marks this city as Kingston is the first city to record an observance of Memorial Day, or the first Decoration Day in April 1865 and has been continuing the tradition of observance of this date at the Confederate Cemetery ever since. The first Decoration Day was celebrated honoring both Confederate and Union Troops as Union troops still occupied the town and flowers were being placed on graves from both sides of the Civil War.
Kingston displays its wartime artifacts, photographs, and scrapbooks from the Civil War era in the Women’s History Museum, which also teaches visitors how Kingston grew with the W&A Railroad. The Civil War officially ended in Kingston when General Sherman requested and received permission from General Grant for the March to the Sea and the final surrender came from Confederate troops in Kingston by General William T. Wofford. The town even displays markers as a reminder of the 100,000 wounded soldiers’ local residents served in the first Confederate Wayside Home. Kingston has been visited by First Lady Michelle Obama as her great-great-great-grandmother is buried here.
