Atlanta’s Streets

Did you know that there are over 55 streets with the name “Peachtree” in Atlanta? Apparently, they’re named after the Native American village of “Standing Pitch Tree.”

Atlanta’s Symbol

Atlanta’s symbol is a phoenix because Atlanta was the only city in North American destroyed as an act of war. Only 400 buildings survived after General Sherman burnt it to the ground. So the city is almost completely rebuilt after the fact.
