Notes The Cotton States and International Exposition was an event that took place during the fall of 1895 in Piedmont Park just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. The Exposition was meant to foster trade between southern states and South American nations and to exhibit the resources of the region to the world. In 1904, the city of Atlanta purchased Piedmont Park from the Piedmont Park Exposition Company and extended the city limits north to include the park.
