Book Description: With its selection as Indiana's capital in 1821, Indianapolis was destined to become a major Midwestern hub. Through the decades that followed, the Circle City led Indiana into its golden age, when the state was one of the largest industrial and agricultural producers in the nation. Forced to reinvent itself after the decline of heavy industry, Indianapolis now supports a diverse technology- and service-based economy and proudly proclaims itself the amateur sports capital of the world.
