Fulton County is the most populated county in the state of Georgia. It is home to over 1 million people. The largest city is Atlanta, which is also the county seat and the state capital.

The railroad was formed to unite the city of Milledgeville (which was Georgia’s state capital at the time) to Chattanooga, Tennessee. It later helped to establish the area as a transportation hub.
