  Atlanta, Georgia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Atlanta was largely destroyed by Union forces during the Civil War, but was chosen as the state capital in 1868, having been established as the site of command for Union soldiers and the Reconstruction administration.
Atlanta is circled by Interstate 285, called the "Perimeter" by locals, which has come to delineate the interior of the city from the surrounding suburbs.
Atlanta has such a great economic impact on the state and the surrounding region that cities and towns up to 45 miles away are considered 'exurbs', defined by the fact that people depend on their livelihoods by commuting to work in the city, rapidly growing what is called Metro Atlanta.

Atlanta midfielder Cindy Parlow, whose hat trick marked her first three goals of this season, as well as her first WUSA hat trick, helped the Beat (5-2-4) top the Philadelphia Charge (3-6-2) by a 4-2 tally at Herndon Stadium on Sunday evening.
The Beat thought that they had an equalizer from Parlow in the twenty-fourth minute when her header past Philadelphia goalie Melissa Moore was negated when she was called for a foul on the play.
Atlanta actually got the equalizer from German national Conny Pohlers just seven minutes later when she gathered up a loose ball and rocketed a shot to the top left corner out of the reach of Moore from about twenty-four yards out for her second goal of the season.
