"In 1847, Terminus became Atlanta. In 1864, Atlanta became ashes. After Sherman’s march, a bunch of Atlantans became madder than hell (some still are). They made a seal of the city to mark those years. And since 1865, Atlanta has made up for most all it lost. When you crest the last hill headed in from the west, you’ll see the skyscrapers reaching, like a phoenix, northward into the Southern sky."
