Goldsboro, North Carolina

We learn that "only one low-voltage switch" prevented the Southron town from being hit by a weapon "that would have been 260 times more powerful than the device that devastated Hiroshima" — The Near Detonation of a Mark 39 Hydrogen Bomb Over North Carolina in 1961.

That would have given the term "friendly fire" a whole new ring. Would Evil Emperor Lincoln have hesitated from using such a device?
