This chapter explores the heavy Jewish involvement in factional city politics in Atlanta, Georgia, from the end of the Civil War through the Progressive Era. It highlights the tension between the older German Jews and newer, poorer Russian Jews, and the conflict between the German Jews and both the labor unions and the African Americans. Despite the tensions and conflicts, the German Jews were able to emerge as well-established, politically and commercially savvy and successful in various business ventures.

Keywords:   Jews, city politics, Atlanta, Georgia, Civil War, Progressive Era, Russian Jews, African Americans, labor unions
