Kennesaw Mountain Museum - Strategic Center of the South

Read on the upper Photo:

"Atlanta - Noisy, bustling crowded, tobacco-spitting Atlanta. In just twenty years, it has grown from a fez rude shanties at the end of the tracks to become a red clay colossus, "the workshop, the granary, the storehouse, and the arsenal of the Confederacy."

By the spring of 1864, the war has transformed Atlanta and many smaller Georgia cities and towns centers of industry."
