Whittling down the dead links[edit]

A few days ago someone used the (often malfunctioning) Checklinks script to drop no less than 46 dead link tags into the article. Yikes. It turned out many of these tags were bogus - either the links weren't dead or there were perfectly good Internet Archive links already supplied. I've whittled the mess down by removing the bogus ones, and fixing up as many of the rest as I can. I'm going a bit wonky at this point, my eyes can't focus from looking at so many Internet Archive URLs. So I'm going to leave the last 7 remaining tags for someone else to clean up - just search for "dead link" in the article. Let me know if I messed up anything. Cheers. --Krelnik (talk) 03:03, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

Dubious elevation claim[edit]

In the *Geography* section, there is a claim: at 1,050 feet (320 m) above mean sea level, Atlanta has the highest elevation of major cities east of the Mississippi River. The cited reference in fact lists at least three other cities in the Eastern US with higher elevations, including Pittsburgh PA (1203 ft), Akron OH (1228 ft), and Asheville NC (2165 ft). Perhaps Akron and Asheville are not *major* cites, but surely Pittsburgh is. MatthewZimmerman (talk) 19:34, 22 February 2017 (UTC)

Was The War Between the States the Civil War or the American Civil War?[edit]

The Wikipedia article on The War Between the States is titled The American Civil War. That title is appropriate because Wikipedia is an international encyclopedia, and a lot of foreigners are not familiar with that particular conflict, which dates back more than a hundred and fifty years.

Discussion of the Civil War in the Atlanta article is a little different. Atlanta is in the State of Georgia, which is in the United States. It's not necessary to describe that particular civil war as "The American Civil War". As a matter of fact, I've never seen that war described with the word "American" until today.

If editors insist on keeping it "American Civil War," the title of the header in the section "Civil War" should also be changed to "American Civil War." Personally, I think that it's silly to use the designation "American" in the article on Atlanta. Anthony22 (talk) 02:54, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
