Georgia - Atlanta

Atlanta is the capital and the most populous city of the state of Georgia, and its population as of the 2010 census was roughly 420,000 people. Atlanta is a city with rich history and an economy that's based on a wide variety of industries.

The city of Atlanta was founded in 1837 at the end of the Western and Atlantic lines of railroad. The city was known as Marthasville in honor of the governor's daughter, nicknamed Terminus due to its location on the railroad lines, and known as several other names; finally the name was changed to Atlanta in honor of the Atlantic rail line. The city was incorporated as Atlanta in 1847, and it thrived due to its location as a hub of transportation. The area surrounding the city was important in several Civil War battles, and General William Tecumseh Sherman ordered the city of Atlanta to be burnt to the ground in 1864, and the area was slowly rebuilt in the years following. In 1868 the capital of the state of Georgia was moved from Milledgeville to Atlanta due to its rail network. Atlanta has had its share of important historical events in the city's history, such as the Atlanta Race Riot of 1906 and the Great Atlanta Fire in 1917, but the city has worked hard to rebuild itself and today is considered to be a city rich in culture with a strong economy.

Today Atlanta is home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies. Since much of Atlanta was burnt down during the Civil War, Atlanta's skyline can be seen as being fairly modern. Atlanta is home to many cultural institutions such as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Georgia Aquarium and many museums. Atlanta is home to many sports teams, several of which include the MLB's Atlanta Braves and the NFL's Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta is home to more than 30 different colleges and universities, which includes Emory University. Emory University is consistently ranked as one of the top 20 schools in the nation. Atlanta features the world's busiest airport based upon passenger traffic, and this helps keep Atlanta as the transportation hub that it was when it first became a city hundreds of years ago.
