Atlanta
It’s been called Terminus and Marthasville, but we now know it as Atlanta. It was burned to the ground during the Civil War but notoriously rose from the ashes like the "resurgens" that has become the city’s motto. Atlanta was an important city during the Civil Rights Movement and the site of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The music scene here slowly developed and has become home to hip-hop and rap record labels like So So Def Recordings, and it has now grown to include all genres. Today Atlanta is headquarters to countless companies including Delta, Coca Cola, Turner Broadcasting, and Equifax.
