The United States of America known as the United States or America, is a country composed of 50 states, a federal district, five major self-governing territories, various possessions. At 3.8 million square miles, the United States is the world's third or fourth largest country by total area and is smaller than the entire continent of Europe's 3.9 million square miles. With a population of over 327 million people, the U. S. is the third most populous country. The capital is Washington, D. C. and the largest city by population is New York City. Forty-eight states and the capital's federal district are contiguous in North America between Canada and Mexico; the State of Alaska is in the northwest corner of North America, bordered by Canada to the east and across the Bering Strait from Russia to the west. The State of Hawaii is an archipelago in the mid-Pacific Ocean; the U. S. territories are scattered about the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, stretching across nine official time zones. The diverse geography and wildlife of the United States make it one of the world's 17 megadiverse countries.
Paleo-Indians migrated from Siberia to the North American mainland at least 12,000 years ago. European colonization began in the 16th century; the United States emerged from the thirteen British colonies established along the East Coast. Numerous disputes between Great Britain and the colonies following the French and Indian War led to the American Revolution, which began in 1775, the subsequent Declaration of Independence in 1776; the war ended in 1783 with the United States becoming the first country to gain independence from a European power. The current constitution was adopted in 1788, with the first ten amendments, collectively named the Bill of Rights, being ratified in 1791 to guarantee many fundamental civil liberties; the United States embarked on a vigorous expansion across North America throughout the 19th century, acquiring new territories, displacing Native American tribes, admitting new states until it spanned the continent by 1848. During the second half of the 19th century, the Civil War led to the abolition of slavery.
By the end of the century, the United States had extended into the Pacific Ocean, its economy, driven in large part by the Industrial Revolution, began to soar. The Spanish–American War and World War I confirmed the country's status as a global military power; the United States emerged from World War II as a global superpower, the first country to develop nuclear weapons, the only country to use them in warfare, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council. Sweeping civil rights legislation, notably the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the Fair Housing Act of 1968, outlawed discrimination based on race or color. During the Cold War, the United States and the Soviet Union competed in the Space Race, culminating with the 1969 U. S. Moon landing; the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 left the United States as the world's sole superpower. The United States is the world's oldest surviving federation, it is a representative democracy.
The United States is a founding member of the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Organization of American States, other international organizations. The United States is a developed country, with the world's largest economy by nominal GDP and second-largest economy by PPP, accounting for a quarter of global GDP; the U. S. economy is post-industrial, characterized by the dominance of services and knowledge-based activities, although the manufacturing sector remains the second-largest in the world. The United States is the world's largest importer and the second largest exporter of goods, by value. Although its population is only 4.3% of the world total, the U. S. holds 31% of the total wealth in the world, the largest share of global wealth concentrated in a single country. Despite wide income and wealth disparities, the United States continues to rank high in measures of socioeconomic performance, including average wage, human development, per capita GDP, worker productivity.
The United States is the foremost military power in the world, making up a third of global military spending, is a leading political and scientific force internationally. In 1507, the German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller produced a world map on which he named the lands of the Western Hemisphere America in honor of the Italian explorer and cartographer Amerigo Vespucci; the first documentary evidence of the phrase "United States of America" is from a letter dated January 2, 1776, written by Stephen Moylan, Esq. to George Washington's aide-de-camp and Muster-Master General of the Continental Army, Lt. Col. Joseph Reed. Moylan expressed his wish to go "with full and ample powers from the United States of America to Spain" to seek assistance in the revolutionary war effort; the first known publication of the phrase "United States of America" was in an anonymous essay in The Virginia Gazette newspaper in Williamsburg, Virginia, on April 6, 1776. The second draft of the Articles of Confederation, prepared by John Dickinson and completed by June 17, 1776, at the latest, declared "The name of this Confederation shall be the'United States of America'".
The final version of the Articles sent to the states for ratification in late 1777 contains the sentence "The Stile of this Confederacy shall be'The United States of America'". In June 1776, Thomas Jefferson wrote the phrase "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" in all capitalized letters in the headline of his "original Rough draught" of the Declaration of Independence; this draft of the document did not surface unti
Cobb County, Georgia
Cobb County is a suburban county in the U. S. state of Georgia. As of 2017, the population was 755,754, its county seat and largest city is Marietta. Along with several adjoining counties, Cobb County was founded on December 3, 1832, by the Georgia General Assembly from the large Cherokee County territory—land northwest of the Chattahoochee River which the state confiscated from the Cherokee Nation and redistributed to settlers via lottery, following the passage of the federal Indian Removal Act; the county was named for Thomas Willis Cobb, a U. S. representative and senator from Georgia. It is believed that Marietta was named for Mary. Cobb County is included in GA Metropolitan Statistical Area, it is situated to the northwest of Atlanta's city limits. Its Cumberland District, an edge city, has over 24,000,000 square feet of office space; as of 2017, Major League Baseball's Atlanta Braves play in Cumberland. The U. S. Census Bureau ranks Cobb County as the most-educated in the state of Georgia and 12th among all counties in the US.
It has ranked among the Top 100 wealthiest counties in the nation. In October 2017, Cobb was ranked as the "Least Obese County in Georgia" Cobb county was one of nine Georgia counties carved out of the disputed territory of the Cherokee Nation in 1832, it was the 81st county in Georgia and named for Judge Thomas Willis Cobb, who served as a U. S. Senator, state representative, superior court judge, it is believed that the county seat of Marietta was named for Mary. The state started acquiring right-of-way for the Western & Atlantic Railroad in 1836. A train began running between Marietta and Marthasville in 1845. Before the Civil War, Marietta was a summer resort for residents of Savannah and Charleston fleeing yellow fever. During the American Civil War, some confederate troops were trained at a camp in Big Shanty, where the Andrews Raid occurred, starting the Great Locomotive Chase. There were battles of New Hope Church May 25, Pickett's Mill May 27, Dallas May 28; these were followed by the prolonged series of battles through most of June until early July: the Battle of Marietta and the Battle of Noonday Creek.
The Battle of Allatoona Pass on October 28 occurred as Sherman was starting his march through Georgia. Union forces confiscated or burnt crops; the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain June 27, 1864, was the site of the only major Confederate victory in General William T. Sherman's invasion of Georgia. Despite the victory, Union forces outflanked the Confederates. In 1915, Leo Frank, the Jewish supervisor of an Atlanta pencil factory, convicted of murdering one of his workers, thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan, was kidnapped from his jail cell and brought to Frey's Gin, two miles east of Marietta, where he was lynched. Cotton farming in the area peaked from the 1890s through the 1920s. Low prices during the Great Depression resulted in the cessation of cotton farming throughout Cobb County; the price of cotton went from 16¢ per pound in 1920 to 9½¢ in 1930. This resulted in a cotton bust for the county, which had stopped growing the product but was milling it; this bust was followed by the Great Depression.
To help combat the bust, the state started work on a road in 1922 that would become U. S. 41 replaced by Cobb Parkway in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In 1942, Bell Aircraft opened a Marietta plant to manufacture B-29 bombers and Marietta Army Airfield was founded. Both were closed after World War II, but reopened during the Korean War, when the air field was acquired by the Air Force, renamed Dobbins AFB, the plant by Lockheed. During the Korean and Vietnam Wars, Lockheed Marietta was the leading manufacturer of military transport planes, including the C-130 Hercules and the C-5 Galaxy. "In Cobb County and other sprawling Cold War suburbs from Orange County to Norfolk/Hampton Roads, the direct link between federal defense spending and local economic prosperity structured a bipartisan political culture of hawkish conservatism and material self-interest on issues of national security." When county home rule was enacted statewide by amendment to the Georgia state constitution in the early 1960s, Ernest W. Barrett became the first chairman of the new county commission.
The county courthouse, built in 1888, was demolished, spurring a law that now prevents counties from doing so without a referendum. In the 1960s and 1970s, Cobb transformed from rural to suburban, as integration spurred white flight from the city of Atlanta, which by 1970 was majority-African-American. Real-estate booms drew rural white southerners and Rust Belt transplants, both groups first-generation white-collar workers. Cobb County was the home of Georgia governor Lester Maddox. In 1975, Cobb voters elected John Birch Society leader Larry McDonald to Congress, running in opposition to desegregation busing. A conservative Democrat, McDonald called for investigations into alleged plots by the Rockefellers and the Soviet Union to impose "socialist-one-world-government" and co-founded the Western Goals Foundation. In 1983, McDonald died aboard Korean Air Lines Flight 007, shot down by a Soviet fighter jet over restricted airspace. I-75 through the county is now named for him. In 1990, Republican Congressmen Newt Gingrich became Representative of a new district centered around Cobb County.
In 1994, as Republicans took control of the U. S. House of Representatives for the first time in fifty years, Gingrich became Speaker of the House, thrusting Cobb County into the national spotlight. In 1993, county commissioners passed a resolution condemning homosexuality and cut off funding for the arts after c
Red Top Mountain State Park
Red Top Mountain State Park is a state park in the U. S. state of Georgia. It is located in the northwestern part of the state, on the northwestern edge of metro Atlanta, in southeastern Bartow County near Cartersville. Named for iron-rich Red Top Mountain, the park covers 1,776 acres on a peninsula jutting north into Lake Allatoona, formed on the park's north and east sides by the Etowah River arm and on the west by Allatoona Creek arm. During the 1864 Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War, the Battle of Allatoona Pass was fought on a battlefield near the park; the park's main popularity however comes from being near Atlanta, just off Interstate 75. It is one of the most-visited parks in the state. A modern lodge was constructed in 1985, but closed, along with the restaurant and conference rooms, June 30, 2010 due to statewide budget cuts. 36 tent/trailer/RV sites 52 Walk-In Campsites 1 Yurt 18 cottages Swimming beach Tennis courts 7 Picnic shelters Two group shelters 1 Pioneer campground Small putt-putt course Hills of Iron Springtime at the Homestead Mountain Music Series Harvest Time at the Homestead Battle of Allatoona Pass George Washington Carver State Park Official website Friends of Red Top Red Top Mountain State Park From About North Georgia Roadside Georgia Visit Cartersville Georgia StateParks CitySearch Access Atlanta Georgia Getaway
The Cherokee are one of the indigenous people of the Southeastern Woodlands of the United States. Prior to the 18th century, they were concentrated in what is now southwestern North Carolina, southeastern Tennessee, the tips of western South Carolina and northeastern Georgia; the Cherokee language is part of the Iroquoian language group. In the 19th century, James Mooney, an American ethnographer, recorded one oral tradition that told of the tribe having migrated south in ancient times from the Great Lakes region, where other Iroquoian-speaking peoples lived. Today there are three federally recognized Cherokee tribes: the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in North Carolina, the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma, the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. By the 19th century, European settlers in the United States classified the Cherokee of the Southeast as one of the "Five Civilized Tribes", because they were agrarian and lived in permanent villages and began to adopt some cultural and technological practices of the European American settlers.
The Cherokee were one of the first, if not the first, major non-European ethnic group to become U. S. citizens. Article 8 in the 1817 treaty with the Cherokee stated that Cherokees may wish to become citizens of the United States; the Cherokee Nation has more than 300,000 tribal members, making it the largest of the 567 federally recognized tribes in the United States. In addition, numerous groups claim Cherokee lineage, some of these are state-recognized. A total of more than 819,000 people are estimated to claim having Cherokee ancestry on the US census, which includes persons who are not enrolled members of any tribe. Of the three federally recognized Cherokee tribes, the Cherokee Nation and the UKB have headquarters in Tahlequah, Oklahoma; the UKB are descendants of "Old Settlers", Cherokee who migrated to Arkansas and Oklahoma about 1817 prior to Indian Removal. They are related to the Cherokee who were forcibly relocated there in the 1830s under the Indian Removal Act; the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is on the Qualla Boundary in western North Carolina.
A Cherokee language name for Cherokee people is Aniyvwiyaʔi, translating as "Principal People". Tsalagi is the Cherokee word for Cherokee. Many theories, though none proven, abound about the origin of the name "Cherokee", it may have been derived from the Choctaw word Cha-la-kee, which means "people who live in the mountains", or Choctaw Chi-luk-ik-bi, meaning "people who live in the cave country". The earliest Spanish transliteration of the name, from 1755, is recorded as Tchalaquei. Another theory is; the Iroquois Five Nations based in New York have called the Cherokee Oyata'ge'ronoñ. The word Cherokee means “people of different speech.” Anthropologists and historians have two main theories of Cherokee origins. One is that the Cherokee, an Iroquoian-speaking people, are relative latecomers to Southern Appalachia, who may have migrated in late prehistoric times from northern areas around the Great Lakes, the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee nations and other Iroquoian-speaking peoples.
Another theory is. Researchers in the 19th century recorded conversations with elders who recounted an oral tradition of the Cherokee people migrating south from the Great Lakes region in ancient times, they may have moved south into Muscogee Creek territory and settled at the sites of mounds built by the Mississippian culture and earlier moundbuilders. In the 19th century, European-American settlers mistakenly attributed several Mississippian culture sites in Georgia to the Cherokee, including Moundville and Etowah Mounds. However, other evidence shows that the Cherokee did not reach this part of Georgia until the late 18th century and could not have built the mounds; the Connestee people, believed to be ancestors of the Cherokee, occupied western North Carolina circa 200 to 600 CE. Pre-contact Cherokee are considered to be part of the Pisgah Phase of Southern Appalachia, which lasted from circa 1000 to 1500. Despite the consensus among most specialists in Southeast archeology and anthropology, some scholars contend that ancestors of the Cherokee people lived in western North Carolina and eastern Tennessee for a far longer period of time.
During the late Archaic and Woodland Period, Native Americans in the region began to cultivate plants such as marsh elder, pigweed and some native squash. People created new art forms such as shell gorgets, adopted new technologies, developed an elaborate cycle of religious ceremonies. During the Mississippian culture-period, local women developed a new variety of maize called eastern flint corn, it resembled modern corn and produced larger crops. The successful cultivation of corn surpluses allowed the rise of larger, more complex chiefdoms consisting of several villages and concentrated populations during this period. Corn became celebrated among numerous peoples in religious ceremonies the Green Corn Ceremony. Much of what is known about pre-18th-century Native American cultures has come from records of Spanish expeditions; the earliest ones of the mid-16th-century encountered people of the Mississippian culture, the ancestors to tribes in the Southeast such as
Lake Allatoona is a U. S. Army Corps of Engineers reservoir on the Etowah River in northwestern part of the State of Georgia, in the countryside; this reservoir is in southeastern Bartow County and southwestern Cherokee County. A small portion is located in Cobb County near Acworth. Cartersville is the nearest city to Allatoona Dam. Red Top Mountain State Park is located on its shores, on the peninsula between the two arms of the lake. Most of the north side of the lake remains protected from land development because of its isolated location blocked by the lake; the major highways Interstate 75 and U. S. Highway 41 pass along the southern and western sided of Lake Allatoona, they cross the Etowah River downstream from the Allatoona Dam. Allatoona serves seven authorized purposes: Flood Control Hydropower generation Water supply Recreation Fish and wildlife management Water quality NavigationThere are several private marinas and public boat ramps on the banks of the lake. Lake Allatoona supplies much of the drinking water for the three counties that it is in.
The water is supplied by the Etowah River, its major tributary the Little River, in turn Noonday Creek. The other major arm of the lake is Allatoona Creek, extending down to Acworth, where pre-existing Lake Acworth now empties directly into Allatoona at Lake Acworth Drive. Other significant streams include Rose Creek; the Allatoona Dam holding back the lake was completed in 1949 on the Etowah River, which in turn merges with the Oostanaula River at Rome, Georgia to form the Coosa River of Georgia and Alabama. Its basin upstream of Lake Allatoona covers about 1,100 square miles; this is nearly as large as the basin of Lake Lanier, but since Lake Allatoona is smaller, it drains and fills more than Lake Lanier during droughts and floods. The lake's summer level has averaged 840 feet above mean sea level. During major droughts it has dropped as much as 13 feet below this, exposing old tree stumps and former hills which are submerged at depth safe for navigating boats, its maximum capacity or flood stage is +23 feet, though it has never been known to reach this level, flooding of boat ramps and other lakeside facilities begins to occur well below it.
Hydroelectric power generation at Allatoona returns more than $3.5 million to the U. S. Treasury annually; the Corps of Engineers has 662 campsites on Allatoona. Allatoona Pass was the site of an intensive 8-hour battle during the Atlanta Campaign of the American Civil War in June 1864. More than 1,500 Union and Confederate soldiers were missing in this battle. Lake Allatoona was authorized by the Flood Control Acts of 1941 and 1946; the creekside town of Allatoona, Georgia was destroyed by the creation of the lake. Several roads were severed or rerouted, including the Acworth-Dallas Highway; the general contractor for construction of Allatoona Dam was National Constructor Inc. The total cost of the Allatoona project for construction, land and relocation was $31,500,000 in 1950; the record high water on Allatoona of 861.19 feet occurred on April 9, 1964. Visitors to Allatoona spent more than $12 million for consumable goods in 1999; the Corps collected more than $1 million in camping and day use fees in 2006.
From 1950 through 2006, 281 drownings have occurred in Allatoona. The power plant began operation January 31, 1950. Since 1957 the summer pool elevation has been 840 feet AMSL. Since 1957 the winter draw-down has been 823 feet AMSL. Two municipalities withdraw water from the lake; the city of Cartersville uses 12,000,000 US gallons per day. Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority uses 43,000,000 US gallons per day. During the late 1980s there was a prolonged drought; the peak of the drought in 1986 exposed vast portions of the lake bed revealing tree stumps and foundations of houses. Grass grew in some places and children were seen to mow the grass and play baseball on the newfound vacant lots. In 1998 Allatoona clocked 86,813,126 hours, which were more visitor hours than any of the other 450 Corps of Engineer projects in the United States, exceeded that in 2006 with more than 92 million visitor hours; the presence of Allatoona Dam has prevented nearly $80 million in flood damages since 1950. There are eight operated marinas that provide fuel, boat repairs, supplies, and/ or other boater's needs.
There are two yacht-clubs, one off Kellogg Creek Road towards the middle of the lake and the other off Red Top Mountain State Park Rd. The Corps of Engineers provides fifteen public boat ramps throughout the lake area located in three counties: Cobb and Bartow; these are used for water sports, water park area, paddle boating, picnic place, for the south-western part of the lake. Parking is provided. Camping: The Corps of Engineers operates seven campgrounds and campsites on the Lake Allatoona area. Hunting: All hunting seasons are set by the appropriate state or local governing authority. State hunting licenses are required at all areas open to hunting on the Corps of Engineers property.

The Etowah River is a 164-mile-long waterway that rises northwest of Dahlonega, north of Atlanta. On Matthew Carey's 1795 map the river was labeled "High Town River". On maps, such as the 1839 Cass County map, it was referred to as "Hightower River", a name, used in most early Cherokee records; the large Amicalola Creek is a primary tributary near the beginning of the river. The Etowah flows west-southwest through Canton and soon forms Lake Allatoona. From the dam at the lake, it passes the Etowah Indian Mounds archaeological site, it flows to Rome, where it meets the Oostanaula River and forms the Coosa River at their confluence. The river is the northernmost portion of the Etowah-Coosa-Alabama-Mobile Waterway, stretching from the mountains of north Georgia to Mobile Bay in Alabama; the Little River is the largest tributary of the Etowah, their confluence now flooded by Lake Allatoona. Allatoona Creek is another major tributary, flowing north from Cobb County and forming the other major arm of the lake.
The U. S. Board on Geographic Names named the river in 1897; the river ends at 571 feet above mean sea level. The river is home to the Etowah darter, listed on the Endangered Species List. Country singer-songwriter Jerry Reed made the Etowah the home of the wild, misunderstood swamp dweller Ko-Ko Joe in the 1971 song "Ko-Ko Joe"; the fictional character, reviled by respectable people but dies a hero while saving a child's life, is alternately known as the "Etowah River Swamp Rat" in the song. Reed, a native of Atlanta, took some liberties with Georgia geography in the song, including the non-existent "Appaloosa County" and "Ko-Ko Ridge" as part of the song narrative’s setting.
