In 1845, Atlanta was the last stop at the end of a railroad line, the home of just twelve families and three general stores. By the 1860s, it was a thriving Confederate city, second only to Richmond in importance. This book tells the stories of Atlanta's diverse citizens - white and black, free and enslaved, well-to-do and everyday people.
