Long Description:

Victory Drive


On August 15, 1945, celebrating the surrender of Japan which ended World War II, the Muscogee County Commission unanimously voted to rename the boulevard extending from Columbus to Fort Benning as Victory Drive. Commissioner L.R. Aldridge state, "No time could be more appropriate than the day following the night when we know victory is ours." Ft. Benning Commanding General William H. Hobson responded to the gesture: "We believe that so designating the highway as ´Victory Drive´ will be long-lived testimonial to the men and women of Georgia, and the men and women who have trained at Fort Benning during World War II, for their contributions to Victory."
