I noticed that this page is within the category "Georgia".however, the category "Georgia" is about the Georgia located in Europe.this article probably is about the Georgia located in the United States, there's a category called "Georgia (America)".Collie Kaltenbrunner 11:31, January 26, 2011 (UTC)
As South noted on the Piedmont article, there's a better case there for that team to be called Braves. A better name here would be the Romans, a name for baseball teams here used several times in the past, or the Red Sox or Hillies, which have also been used. Lordganon 16:01, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
Let's go with Romans. BrianD 17:50, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
Both of those 1985 candidates would have not only not been in the area at DD, but also died during it. Residents of the coast (Augusta area) and Atlanta. Can't use them. Lordganon (talk) 12:35, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
As I point out below, Ginn may have been in Washington, DC, after having started a lobbying group there. If so, he would have died there. As for Maddux, he might have survived, depending on the evacuation of Bibb County on a Sunday evening. The article does make it plain that evacuation was a priority.

Bibb County? Why on earth would a lifelong resident of Atlanta and Marietta have been there, in Macon?
Even if he was not in Washington, he'd have been in Augusta.
I have no idea why I typed Bibb County. I was looking right at the map I pulled up for Maddox's home in 1983. It clearly showed a county in the Atlanta area. I plea old age. lol

- I posted this to the new editor's talk page:
- I believe you have misjudged the dynamics of politics of north Georgia in the mid-80's. There would not have been a merging of the two major parties, and if they were, it probably would be the Georgia Republican - not Republic - Party. To name it the "Republic" party would be declaring the state an independent nation, which it would only become (to an extent) after the dissolution of the CSA in 1999.
- Second, Zell Miller, as Lt. Governor, would have only been governor for a little over a year -- and acting governor of an interim government at that -- and so would be fully eligible to be governor again. And as for Maddux, the constitution did not prohibit a former governor from being elected to the same office later. In fact he did run again in 1990 in OTL. I fully expect that the race might have been between Miller and Maddux -- IF Maddux had escaped the attack on Atlanta, near which he lived and worked.
- Finally, concerning Ronald "Bo" Ginn, he started a lobbying firm in Washington, DC, in 1983, so he most likely would have been in DC when the bombs fell, since the Congress was in session. It is highly unlikely that he would have made it back to Rome by 1985 if he had survived somehow.
- Thank you for bravely going where no one has dared go before. However, I appreciate your attempts to keep the conservative flavor in the new state of Georgia. I just don't think it would have been quite as united in a time when socialism would hold sway by necessity. You mention the "more liberal" southern Georgia. That might well be, among the black community, but that is a moot point, for they were incorporated in Neonotia. The Georgia (Rome) article clearly states that in was a state made up of survivors of the region near northwest Georgia. SouthWriter (talk) 03:43, February 14, 2015 (UTC)
