Acworth Bookstore will host a book signing SATURDAY August 10th from 1 to 5 PM . Todd Defeo is the author of Western and Atlantic Railroad, an Arcadia publication. The State of Georgia chartered the Western & Atlantic Railroad in 1836. The railroad aided in the development and growth of many communities between Atlanta and Chattanooga TN. During the Civil War, both armies used this vital artery, and it was the setting for one of the war’s most iconic events, the Great Locomotive Chase. The state still owns the Western & Atlantic and has leased it since 1870. Todd highlights the line’s essential role in North Georgia and in being the backbone of the region’s industry. As Atlanta ponders its transportation future, it is important to remember that without the Western & Atlantic, Atlanta would not be the city it is today.
