Atlanta and Environs: A Chronicle of Its People and Events, 1880s-1930s
Atlanta and Environs is, in every way, an exhaustive history of the Atlanta Area from the time of its settlement in the 1820s through the 1970s. Volumes I and II, together more than two thousand pages in length, represent a quarter century of research by their author, Franklin M. Garrett—a man called “a walking encyclopedia on Atlanta history” by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. With the publication of Volume III, by Harold H. Martin, this chronicle of the South's most vibrant city incorporates the spectacular growth and enterprise that have characterized Atlanta in recent decades.

Review: Atlanta and Environs: A Chronicle of Its People and Events, 1820s-1870sUser Review - Goodreads
The gold standard for histories of American cities, and one of the indispensable resources for an amateur of the history of Georgia (the others being The Children of Pride, The Clamorous Malcontents, and Freedom). A gift from Amanda.
