The capital of the great state of Georgia, Atlanta, is one of the most interesting and cultural cities in the South.

By the beginning of the American Civil War in 1860, population had grown from about 30 to 9,554. Following the destruction of Georgia's capital by General Sherman, it took a bit of time to rebuild and, eventually, the city grew back to a large population by 1880, surpassing Savannah as Georgia's largest city.

By the 1900s, Atlanta's skyline started to show large buildings and companies began moving to the busy city. With the filming of Gone With The Wind in Atlanta, popularity increased even more; however, with that came the heat of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. Atlanta suddenly became the center of attention as it was the home of Martin Luther King, Jr. After the struggles of the movement, the city once again recovered, and by the 1990s, was put on the world's stage yet again for the 1996 Summer Olympics.
