1. Birmingham (called "New Birmingham" in the 1800's and thus referred to once in Sobel) is on the site of IOW Birmingham AL and is somewhat larger because steel and electricity started earlier. The SC is actually quite urban, with New Orleans one of the largest cities in the CNA and Charleston far bigger than IOW. Georgia includes IOW Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi Florida, and bits of Louisiana including New Orleans. Its capital, Cornwallis (moved from Savannah around 1840, when IOW Georgia moved its to Atlanta) is on the site of Montgomery, Alabama IOW. Terminus is a medium-sized city on the site of Atlanta IOW.
