Prior to the Civil War, Atlanta was at the intersection of four rail lines, rendering the Georgia crossroads the fastest-growing city in the Deep South. As the Confederate States formed, Atlanta was a city deeply divided about secession. By the spring of 1863, war had arrived at the doorstep of Atlanta. Join historian Bob Davis as he tells the story of the devastation that befell Atlanta, the Union occupation and how the "Gate City" was reborn from the ashes.
