Atlanta, Georgia


Atlanta was founded in 1836 as a railroad terminus. In fact, its original name was “Terminus”. The city was burned to the ground in 1864 as part of Sherman’s March to the Sea during the Civil War. The events of the “march” were portrayed in the film Gone with the Wind, one of the most beloved movies in American history. After the war, Atlanta was quickly rebuilt and soon became the cultural and industrial center of the South. Today, Atlanta is a bustling city with a metropolitan area that exceeds 5,000,000 people. It was the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. and numerous celebrities. Atlanta serves as the world headquarters for Coca-Cola, Home Depot, CNN, and UPS.
