Known for the world’s best peaches, Atlanta was founded in 1837 at the end of the Western and Atlantic railroad lines. First called Terminus for its railroad location; it was requested by the locals to name it Lumpkin after the Governor. However, Lumpkin requested to have it named after his daughter Martha. So, Marthasville it was. Not long after that, the name was permanently changed to Atlanta, the feminine version of the Atlantic after the railroad.
Like all other lands in the country, Atlanta’s first settlers were Native Americans called Creek people. The War of 1812 ended for the Creek nation with expulsion from 21 million acres between Alabama and Georgia.
During the Civil war, Atlanta was an important railroad and military supply hub.
Racial adversities resulted in the Atlanta massacre of 1906 when the whites and blacks revolted against each other in prejudice.
1917 brought a devastating fire of unknown sources resulting in over 10,000 people becoming homeless.
From wars to racial segregation to a series of child murders, Atlanta has had its fill of haunting tragedies. The history is rich despite the pain and suffering and is home to the world’s busiest airport, which takes planes, trains, and automobiles to get to a connecting flight!
