It was the high staging ground taken by the north who were then defeated by the south in the Battle of Atlanta right there in the middle of what is now East Atlanta Village. Stories of fighting heros and lost loved ones fill the history books. After recovering from some of the bloodiest battles in the Atlanta Campaign, East Atlanta grew to become a busy trading center with a variety of businesses from grocery stores, blacksmiths, livery stable, dry goods trader and more.
