Jonesboro Area Information
The city's name was originally spelled Jonesborough, and during the American Civil War the final skirmish in the Atlanta Campaign was fought here south of Atlanta, cutting off the city and forcing the mayor of Atlanta to surrender at Marietta in early September 1864. The final fall of Atlanta in the Battle of Jonesborough ended up being a decisive point in the nation's history, propelling Abraham Lincoln to re-election two months later, and continuing the war until the Confederacy finally surrendered the following year.
Jonesboro received international attention in 1936, with the publication of Margaret Mitchell's novel, Gone with The Wind. Numerous scenes of this book were set in Clayton County. The characters and their homes were products of the author's imagination, and only their inspirational prototypes may be found in the county today.
