Waco is closer to Dallas and certainly looks more like it than Tyler does. I know that much.
Treeless prairies?

Yep

Closer to Dallas?

Nope, same EXACT distance...90 miles to Dallas both ways.

I wonder if that has anything to do with him being from Tyler

Tyler is only fashionable to people who don't have the extra money for Dallas.

Non-of those cities are culturally alike in comparison. A true comparison would ask which of the big cities are culturally alike and which of the small cities are culturally alike. The big and small cities have no commonality.

Nothing to brag about. The way the Falcons played last year it was hard for a team not to burn them. Sort of like trying not to burn gasoline with a blow torch. But back to the important Sherman. I'm from Georgia but I still know about the Alamo and Sherman's march was more significant than that.

I can't speak on Atlanta/Macon because I know absolutely nothing about Macon and I'm slightly embarrassed that I also don't know who Sherman is. I definitely didn't pay attention in history class. There's little that I even know about Sam Houston or Stephen F. Austin so just imagine how little I know about other notable historical figures in other states. As for European history I can go on for hours and hours with the abundance of history I've studied on it. I love European history.
Sherman was one of the major Union generals during the civil wars, He most known for the campaign "really string of campaigns" known as Sherman's March to the Sea. After the battle of Chattanooga TN on GA border Sherman March to Atlanta fought 13 battles in metro Atlanta eventually burning Atlanta, Then he continue on cutting though Georgia to eventually capturing Savannah. Sherman laid a path devastation to the sea. But he did not go to Macon.

Because Atlanta was destroyed Atlanta has little to noone, antebellum architecture, Atlanta more associated with gilded cities and late industrial era, Atlanta has more in common with Chicago and Cleveland then it does with New Orleans and Charleston. because Sherman didn't go though Macon it spared Macon antebellum architecture. Macon is probably what most people stereotype Georgia or the South at large of being.

I would like to get the input of others take on this topic!



This is funny because Macon is a majority black city, Hood City at that, especially on the cities south side while there has been a lot of gentrification in recent years and Downtown seems to be on the up and up. From what I have seen in the Downtown area though, especially with all the gentrification and new loft's, it tends to be majority white, especially with some of the bar scenes.
