The community of Atlanta, California, sits on French Camp Road, in Denton Township, San Joaquin County. Inspiration for the
naming of Atlanta, founded shortly after the Civil War, supposedly came from the popular song "Marching Through Georgia,"
which commemorated U.S. general William Tecumseh Sherman's march from Atlanta to Savannah, Georgia. Atlanta, California, served
as a station for stages in the 1860s and 1870s, and by 1879 had a blacksmith, wagon shop, seven houses, and one store, the
latter of which no longer exists.
