IN REPLY REFER TO :
H30-HH
June 6, 1967
Mr. Jack C. Delius
General Manager of Parks
and Recreation
Department of Parks
Atlanta, Georgia 30303
Dear Mr. Delius:
Thia i1 in reply to your l etter of May 24, -addre&aad to the
Regional Director of our Southeast Region, regarding the
Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta.
I think it would be reasonable to assume that the painting
itself, as an object important in American history, could
eventually be considered for inclusion on the National Register
which is to be expanded under the provisions of Public Law 89- .
665, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. To be
placed on the National Register and thus eligible for Federal
matching grant-in-aid funds, the painting would have to be
included in a statewide survey and historic preservation plan
approved by the Secretary of the Interior. The Georgia His- ·
torical Commission has been designated by Governor Maddox as
Georgia's official State liaison with the Department of the
Interior in the administration of this act as it may relate
to the State of Georgia. While Congressional action on the
Department's appropriation for fiscal year 1968 has not been
completed, it appears unlikely at this time that there will
be any Federal matching grant-in-aid funds available under
P.L. 89-665 during fiscal year 1968.
We are enclosing a copy of the act and a copy of "Federal
Financial Assistance Through the Secretary of the Interior
for Historic Preservation" for your inf ormation.
Sincerely yours,
~~
