Since the middle of the twentieth century, Atlanta has risen from a city of the Old South to a great international city with major league sports teams and one of the world's busiest airports. However, in the process, Atlanta has lost its quaint old Southern charm. The South had an opportunity to win its independence in the War between the States as late as 1864, but its Confederate leaders blew it. Abraham Lincoln was a great man and a great statesman but a poor commander in chief, as evidenced by the excessive length of time required to win the Civil War and the huge number of casualties. The lynching of Leo Frank was one of the terrible tragedies in Atlanta history, but he was not another innocent Alfred Dreyfus. The United States reached its peak of power and influence during World War II and the Cold War. Future historians will chart the beginning of the decline and fall of our country with the advent of the decadent baby boomer generation.
