Special Celebrations and Red Letter Days at the World’s Columbian Exposition.

The assignments for special days were in the hands of the Committee on Ceremonies. The task was difficult, as the demand far exceeded the number of days on which the Exposition was open, and it became necessary to assign several celebrations to the same date; but no serious complications followed, as space and the attendance gave ample opportunity for this arrangement. The States celebrated someday notable in their histories; foreign nations the birthday or coronation day of their sovereigns; and other days of special memories were recognized, as John Adams prophesied for the Fourth of July, "with the sound of cannon and ringing of bells; with speeches, bonfires, and illuminations."

All these special celebrations were occasions of great interest, by no means confined to those who were particularly concerned, but united in heartily by the multitudes assembled. Much credit is due to the Committee on Ceremonies and to Mr. Millet, of the Department of Functions, who gave time and thought to the preparation of the entertainments, many of which were unique, and all of which were fitly prepared and successfully carried into effect.
