There’s a new holiday in Athens, but it’s one that’s been around for 152 years.
For Athens, that day is May 4, the day in 1865 when the Union army arrived and freed the slaves in town and the surrounding countryside, who then gathered with their loved ones at the town hall, hoisting a flag up what they then deemed the “flagpole of liberty.”
While many marches that take place downtown are in protest, Thursday’s vigil and rally marking the “day of jubilee” was one of celebration and honoring ancestors.
Forty-three teams from high schools across the state gathered inside Stegeman Coliseum last weekend to take part in the Peachtree State Championship Qualifying FIRST Robotics Competition.
Teams were divided into two sides, red and blue. Each match consisted of three red and three blue teams—each with its own robot—competing to see which team could complete a series a tasks first.
A red team consisting of OTTO from Forsyth Central High School, RoboMustangs from Meadowcreek High School and RoboBibb from Bibb County high schools won the state championship.
Those teams, along with 12 others from Georgia, will participate in the national championship in Houston, which kicks off Apr. 19.
