A traveling exhibit on sports starts a year-long tour of Georgia beginning Saturday in Swainsboro at East Georgia State College.

It combines national pieces along with local treasures to give people in small communities the chance to see national history.

"So it's important for us to incorporate that into everything we do and be part of every American's life,” said Robbie Davis, Smithsonian Museum.

East Georgia will host the exhibit through the late April. The statewide tour comes through the Georgia Humanities Council.
