ATLANTA GEORGIA HISTORY - ATLANTA GEORGIA HISTORY

Atlanta Georgia HistoryAtlanta History - Atlanta was incorporated in 1847 making it a city and then during the Civil War it became a major target for the Union army.

In 1864 the city burned down because of Sherman, thus in the famed Gone with the Wind it was portrayed and surprisingly Atlanta recovered in a few years.

It continued to be strong and then Atlanta won the right to host the 1996 Olympics, which led to much recognition for the city. The Atlanta population has reached 3.5 million as it becomes an ever more popular place to live and play and work.

Many Newspaper owners, bankers, politicians and city leaders, Industrial giants who based themselves here, included Coca-Cola, who were called “boosters” gave gifts to help establish the city since it was labeled as the “New South”.

The City of Atlanta convinced the world of its prosperity and also of the former CNN Ted Turner and ex-mayor Andrew Young who worked very hard to push to make it even better.

Today the City of Atlanta continues to improve on what it has. Always adding to its glitz and glamour, making better things happen and becoming even more visited as the years pass. This is a town that many love no matter what part of the world they are from. It is impressive from what it came from and what it continues to be and will be.
