Atlanta is a bustling metropolis in Georgia with a very rich history dating back to antebellum times. It has been one of the fastest growing cities in the world in the 1990?s and 2000?s and has become known as a city of international influence.

A BIT OF TRIVIA ABOUT ATLANTA:

The saying goes that the history of Atlanta BEGAN at Fort Peachtree, back when Peachtree Creek flowed into the Chattahoochee River. They say this is where the borderline was between the Creek Indian lands to the south and the Cherokee territories to the north. And right on the borderline was a large peach tree (although, some people say it was a pine tree). The creek it was by was named for the tree, Peachtree Creek. Then the Indian trail was named for the creek, and then the street was named for the trail, etc.

In 1814, the Americans built a fort (Fort Gilmer) near the Standing Peachtree village and it came to be called ? Fort Peachtree. Today the ?fort? is the site of a water quality monitoring station. This spot was chosen as the location where the railroads would come together and form the city of Atlanta. Later, when the city planners realized how confusing it was becoming to have the rivers and train tracks all coming together in one place, they moved the terminus several miles to the east.

Atlanta is not one of the United States of America, but it is the capital and largest city in the State of Georgia. It has a population of about 400,000, but is part of a larger metropolitan area with a population of over 5 million people.

That is a higher population than over half the states in the United States. In addition, Atlanta is a major business, commerce, and cultural center within the South. By hosting the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, Atlanta is often considered a 'world-class' city with prestige higher than many individual states in the US.
