33 History | The International Cotton Exposition of 1881 in Atlanta, Georgia


The International Cotton Exposition (I.C.E.) ran from October 5 to December 3 of 1881 and was hosted by Atlanta, Georgia, located directly on the 33rd Parallel North. It was a chance to show off new state of the art cottage production, and the all new 'Cotton Mill'. In total, exhibits was 1,113 of which the Southern States contributed more than half; New England and Middle States, 341; Western States, 138; foreign, 7.  The event closely followed the death of President Garfield.
  • October = 6+3+2+6+2+5+9 = 33
  • December 3 = 12/3 = (1+2 = 3)/3 = 3/3
  • Please also notice the 1113 exhibits, again the number 311 and 113 ties in with 33
One of the chief funders and backers of the exposition was Hannibal Ingalls Kimball, an entrepreneur and important businessman in post-war Atlanta, Georgia, who began working on putting the expo together in 1880.  The name Kimball, also happens to have "33" numerology.
  • Kimball = 11+9+4+2+1+3+3 = 33
In November of 1880, James Nagle and J.W. Ryckman came to assist Kimball with putting the event together.
  • James = 1+1+4+5+1 = 12
  • Nagle = 5+1+7+3+5 = 21
    • James Nagle = 12+21 = 33
  • J.W. = 10+23 = 33
  • Ryckman = 9+7+3+2+4+1+5 = 31
    • The ranging degrees of Scottish Rite Freemasonry are 31 to 33
Senator Daniel Voorhees was also a major speaker at the event.  On December 7, Planter's Day, they reopened the event for one encore performance, having a record turnout of 10,293.
  • Vorhees = 4+6+6+9+8+5+5+1 = 44
  • Encore = 5+5+3+6+9+5 = 33
  • ATL = 1+20+12 = 33
  • Atlanta is on the 33rd Parallel North
  • Georgia is the 4th State
  • Georgia = 7+5+6+9+7+9+1 = 44
  • Garfield = 7+1+9+6+9+5+3+4 = 44
So what's the point of all this information?  It is to examine what has been going on and is still going on.  If you're not aware, the cotton industry is largely responsible for the destruction of hemp production in the country; as are paper, tobacco and energy industries.  This exposition might very well have been a gathering place for the beginning of such industry takeover and destruction.
