The General Comes Home 45 Years Ago: Famous Andrews' Raiders Locomotive

From a reprint in the August 19, 2017, Panama City (Fla.) News-Herald.

They had a reproduction of their front page from Sunday, February 20, 1972.

There was a picture and a short article under it.

ON GUARD.

Civil War buff Denton Myers of Kennesaw. Georgia, stands guard over famed Civil War locomotive "General" after it reached its final resting place Friday.  The locomotive had been the focus of a five-year battle for possession between Georgia and Tennessee until the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Georgia.

The engine will be a special attraction in a museum in Kennesaw.
