Yeah, if the South was able to get its head out of its ass, abolish slavery ( or at least be less dependent on it and its post Civil War reincarnation, sharecropping) and developed its industry early on, things would be way different. Places like Savannah, Charleston, and New Orleans would have been bigger and more important. I would also say that the inland cities like Atlanta and Charlotte would still be important as railroad hubs, being more like their analogs like Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, and other Midwestern cities.
