Atlanta. It is one of the largest and most important cities and the third most populous city in the United States. It has been considered “the capital of the New South”, “the international city” and “the best place for business”.
It is located to the south of the United States, to the northwest of Georgia and bordered, to the West, by the Chattahoochee River and to the East by Stone mountain, a rocky formation that also houses a park.
In the last century was one of the main promoters and defenders of slavery and, until the civil war, it was the centre of most importance in which was the seat of the military industry of the Confederation. In 1864, in the midst of the Civil War, General William Sherman, a unionist, set fire to the city (a most memorable scene of ‘Gone With The Wind’). But its recovery took a few years: today it represents the archetype of the aggressive, urban and Industrial New South of the country.
