U.S. Route 41
U. S. Route 41 U. S. Highway 41, is a major north–south United States Highway that runs from Miami, Florida to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan; until 1949, the part in southern Florida, from Naples to Miami, was US 94, which presently has the hidden designation of State Road 90 in addition to its signed number. The highway's northern terminus is east of Copper Harbor, Michigan, at a modest cul-de-sac near Fort Wilkins Historic State Park at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula in the state's Upper Peninsula, its southern terminus is in the Brickell neighborhood of Downtown Miami at an intersection with Brickell Avenue. It parallels Interstate 75 from Naples, all the way through Georgia to Chattanooga, Tennessee, it was a part of the Dixie Highway along with U. S. Route 23. In Florida, US 41 is paralleled by Interstate 75 all the way from Miami to Georgia, I-75 has supplanted US 41 as a major highway. Between Miami and Naples, US 41 cuts across the Florida peninsula, running through the vast Everglades wilderness.
This section has been designated a National Scenic Byway. The byway runs east–west through the Big Cypress National Preserve, skirting the northern border of the Everglades National Park for about 20 miles; the part of the highway between Tampa and Miami is known as the Tamiami Trail, this section of the road is known as the East Trail, as it runs east-west across the state, in contrast to the road's otherwise distinctively north-south route. In Naples, Route 41 changes direction at an intersection with 5th Avenue in Downtown Naples, turning from west to north towards Tampa; as the Trail moves into Hillsborough County the historic communities of Ruskin and Gibsonton, Florida are south Hillsborough County high points. Ruskin was founded by the Commongood Society. Highway 41 from Ruskin's Little Manatee River to Big Bend Rd has been designated by the Florida Senate as the Trooper Kenneth E. Flynt Hwy in Memory of Florida Trooper Flynt, killed in the line of duty. Gibsonton was populated by Carnival workers.
US 41 is in the process of being widened throughout the northern Tampa Bay suburbs. It is six lanes wide between Tampa and much of Land O' Lakes, again between Garden Grove and Brooksville, it is four lanes wide in Tampa south of BUS US 41, between a section north of Land O' Lakes and Garden Grove, south of Inverness. A large portion of US 41 is co-designated along the unmarked State Road 45 between Belle Meade and High Springs. From US 92 in Tampa to US 41 Business and State Road 676 near the unincorporated Palm River-Clair Mel, US 41 carries the unsigned State Road 599 designation, it contains the northwestern end of the Tamiami Trail at the SR 60 intersection. It is three lanes wide, but between Interstate 4 and the northern terminus of SR 569 it is only two lanes wide; the unsigned state highway is 5.6 miles long. At the northern terminus, US 41 turns west. Major intersections include State Road 574, SR 569, I-4, SR 60, the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway. In Northern Florida, US 41 runs along the DeSoto Trail between Floral City and Williston and again between High Springs, Lake City.
In Georgia, US 41 is paralleled by Interstate 75 all the way from Florida to Tennessee, I-75 has supplanted US 41 as a major highway. In Atlanta, Highway 41 was carried on Spring Street near Five Points, but it has long been re-routed via Northside Drive around the downtown area; the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Georgia World Congress Center, Philips Arena are located off Northside Drive. South of Atlanta, Metropolitan Parkway and Tara Boulevard carry the highway, along with its co-signed partner US 19, toward Griffin. North of Atlanta, the stretch of Highway 41 between Atlanta and Marietta was the first four-laned highway in Georgia when it was completed in 1938. Now, the Northside Parkway and the Cobb Parkway carry US 41 through northern Fulton and Cobb counties; this thoroughfare is the home of SunTrust Park, the Big Chicken, Cumberland Mall, the Cobb Galleria, the Six Flags White Water amusement park. US 41 passes through the Georgia cities and towns of Calhoun, Kennesaw, Adairsville, Dalton, Macon, Warner Robins, Cordele, Adel and Unadilla.
US 41 was rerouted north of Valdosta onto I-75 at exit 22, runs to exit 29 goes back to the original path. This was done so trucks couldn't use 41 to bypass the Georgia weigh station on 75; the bypassed stretch of 41 is now marked as a "county maintained" road and has a weight limit of 56000 pounds. US 41 has been rerouted to run along Inner Perimeter Road around Valdosta. US 41 Business runs through Valdosta. Valdosta is the last major stop before reaching Florida; the Atlanta Motor Speedway is located on US 41 in Hampton. US 41 has been re-routed in Barnesville and been designated as a truck route and possible industrial area. US 41, joined by US 76, enters Tennessee east of I-75 on the outskirts of East Ridge, it is called Ringgold Road through East Ridge up to the Bachman Tunnel, where it enters Chattanooga and around the base of Lookout Mountain. It heads through the towns of Tifftonia and other communities before ascending the Cumberland Plateau, running through Tracy City and Monteagle, where it descends toward Manchester.
After reaching Monteagle, US 41, included as part of the older Dixie Highway, continues northwest into Pelham, in Grundy County runs parallel with I-24 into Coffee C

Sumter County, Georgia
Sumter County is a county located in the west central portion of the U. S. state of Georgia. As of the 2010 census, the population was 32,819; the county seat is Americus. The county was created on December 26, 1831. Sumter County is part of GA Micropolitan Statistical Area. Sumter County was established by an act of the state legislature on December 26, 1831, four years after the Creek Indians were forced from the region when the state acquired the territory from them in the 1825 Treaty of Indian Springs. Sumter, the state's eightieth county, was created after population increases by a division of Lee County, now situated to its south; the county was named for United States senator Thomas Sumter of South Carolina. When the county was organized, Sumter was ninety-seven years old and the last surviving general of the American Revolution. Shortly thereafter, a committee chose a central site for the county seat and laid out what would become the town of Americus. Many of the county's earliest white residents acquired their land through an 1827 state land lottery.
Like many other white settlers, they developed their property for cotton cultivation. Since the invention of the cotton gin at the end of the 18th century, short-staple cotton was the type of choice throughout the Black Belt of the South; the rich black soil, combined with ready market access via the Flint River or the Chattahoochee River, made Sumter among the state's most prosperous Black Belt counties by the 1840s and 1850s. Cotton agriculture was economically dependent on enslaved African Americans. By the 1850 census, the demographic makeup of the county had become 6,469 whites, 3,835 slaves, 18 free people of color. By the 1860 census, there were 4,890 slaves and 2 free people of color. During the American Civil War, the small village named Andersonville, nine miles north of Americus on the county's northern edge, was selected by Confederate authorities as the site for a prisoner-of-war camp; the Andersonville prison was built in neighboring Macon County and became the largest such prison in the South.
During the camp's fourteen months of operations, some 45,000 Union prisoners suffered some of the worst conditions and highest casualties of any of the camps. Today the Andersonville National Historic Site serves as a memorial to all American prisoners of war throughout the nation's history; the 495-acre park lies in both Macon and Sumter counties and consists of the historic prison site and the National Cemetery, reserved for the Union dead. Other areas of the county have attracted national attention in the twentieth century for different reasons. In 1942 two Baptist ministers chose a farm in the western part of the county as the location for a Christian commune named Koinonia, where black and white workers lived and worked together for nearly fifty years, generating some hostility among local residents during its early years. Sumter County counts a U. S. president among its native sons. Jimmy Carter was born and raised on a peanut farm in Plains, a small community on the county's western edge.
His election to the presidency in 1976 brought the small town considerable attention from journalists and tourists, which it continues to receive as the former president and his wife, much of their family, still make Plains their home. Carter's birthplace and childhood home has been designated a National Historic Site and is open for tours; the headquarters of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate homelessness, is located in Americus, the home of its founder, Millard Fuller. In addition to Habitat's impactful activities, Koinonia Partners publishes a bimonthly newsletter for the Prison and Jail Project promoting prisoner reform and education. Americus is home to two colleges: Georgia Southwestern State University, a public four-year institution established in 1906, is part of the University System of Georgia. South Georgia Technical College, which stands near Souther Field, was a training base for American and British aviators during World War I.
Charles Lindbergh learned to fly here and assembled a military surplus "Jenny" aircraft with the help of mechanics at Souther Field. Downtown Americus boasts two prominent examples of historic restoration: the Windsor Hotel, built in 1892, the Rylander Theatre, which opened in 1921. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 493 square miles, of which 483 square miles is land and 10 square miles is water. Muckalee Creek flows through Sumter County, which contains Lake Blackshear and Kinchafoonee Creek; the western two-thirds of Sumter County, from northeast of Americus to southwest of Leslie, is located in the Kinchafoonee-Muckalee sub-basin of the ACF River Basin. The eastern third of the county is located in the Middle Flint River sub-basin of the same ACF River Basin. Andersonville National Historic Site Jimmy Carter National Historic Site As of the census of 2000, there were 33,200 people, 12,025 households, 8,501 families residing in the county; the population density was 68 people per square mile.
