Tallahassee, Florida saw the Olympic Torch pass through town Tuesday
July 2, 1996 and it didn't go un-noticed!
Charles Guyton carries the flame under the charter oak trees in front
of the Old Historic Capitol to pause in a torch holder while Florida Lieutenant
Governor Buddy McKay addresses the excited Tallahassee crowd.
Next, Florida State University alumnus Walter McCoy, (Olympic track
gold medalist) carries the torch past City Hall to a rally in the park.
As the torch left downtown and headed south, Maryann Ward carried the
torch down Apalachee Parkway before handing it off to Trent Robinson.
It was a thrilling event for Tallahassee's citizens who were eager to
see and touch a part of the Olympic Games. The torch passing through town
enabled many of us to do just that.
