I'm not familiar with the area but that would really surprise me if true. What about Dothan or Hattiesburg?

I agree that the green highlight was a little broad, but they got most of it right, and you are the one who cited Wikipedia has a credible source.
my bits of wiki are correct, yours are wrong

and of course Georgia is in the US, it is one of the original states duh
