Atlanta

Atlanta (in English: Atlanta) is the capital of the American state of Georgia. In 2000, 416,474 people lived in the city.

The city was founded in 1837, and the first settlers were farmers, craftsmen and merchants. During the Civil War, Atlanta played an important role as four railroads passed through the city. After long and drawn-out battles with the North, Atlanta surrendered on September 2, 1864, with much of the buildings completely destroyed.

The city experienced rapid economic growth after the Civil War and was fully rebuilt within 10 years.

Atlanta is now the main metropolis in the Southeastern United States, home to CNN, Coca-Cola, United Parcel Service (UPS), and more. Host of the 1996 Summer Olympics.
