Hidden History of Old Atlanta: Author Talk
April 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us on April 22nd at 7:00 p.m. for a free virtual chat with author Mark Pifer as he discusses his book, Hidden History of Old Atlanta. Long obscured by larger historic events and the passages of time, the little-known facts presented by Mark will deepen your understanding of Atlanta’s past, including events from more recent times. Mark will be joined by Jim Auchmutey, who wrote the introduction to this fascinating new book on Atlanta history.
About the book:
Old Atlanta may conjure images of southern belles and Civil War ruination, but the full story stretches back millennia, even before the first known residents arrived five thousand years ago. From centuries of Native American settlements that ended with the removal of the Creeks to the rough-and-ready pioneer days, the area was rich in history long before it was called Atlanta. Author Mark Pifer unfolds a complex saga, including forgotten details from the struggles of African Americans and new immigrants, while noting modern locations bursting with tales that predate the City in the Forest’s rise amid the treetops.
Hidden History of Old Atlanta is available at Oakland’s online Museum Store.
