Save the date: Celebrate Columbus

The Fourth annual Celebrate Columbus will be 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. March 19 in the National Infantry Museum, 1775 Legacy Way.

The Historic Columbus Foundation began the Celebrate Columbus series to do just that -- to celebrate Columbus.

The first one took a look at the Chattahoochee River and what it means to Columbus. The second one was about Bibb City. Last year's was about Coca-Cola.

This year, HCF is celebrating Fort Benning and its Columbus connection.

The guest speaker is David Stieghan, the historian for the U.S. Army Infantry Branch. He will tell stories and show images that links Columbus and Fort Benning since the early 1900s.

Tickets are $35.
