Summary Sentence: Resilient Atlanta: New Perspectives on the Civil War and Its Aftermath

Full Summary: No summary paragraph submitted.

Atlanta suffered a steep descent during the Civil War and ended it in worse state than any other American city in the history of the United States. Yet, Atlanta emerged like a Phoenix from the ashes of war largely due to the people who lived here. Rich and poor, black and white, those born free and those newly free, male and female, Christian and Jew - the entire fabric of this fascinating southern city – rose up and redefined the "Atlanta Spirit." Join us for a symposium that will look to provide a deeply enriched understanding of this "Atlanta Spirit" and insight into the city's postwar miracle.
