Stories of Atlanta

Rules, regulations and fines

It’s pretty easy to imagine the amount of difficulty the newly chartered City of Atlanta experienced trying to bring the rule of law to a community that, since its inception, essentially had no laws. Atlanta, in its early days, was little more than a rowdy, frontier, railroad camp and, in the minds of many of the city’s “free thinkers,” the newly granted city charter didn’t guarantee anything except that one day it would make for one of the Stories of Atlanta.
