comment Why were rockets not popular as part of artillery until 20th century?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. -- Francis Scott Key, 1814

comment How common are major cities not built by abundant water?
Sure, the largest cities in the US aren't on the largest rivers, but most of them are either coastal or on the Great Lakes. And even if you can't drink seawater, living on the coast generally brings abundant rainfall and a high water table, meaning you can get all the water your civilization needs from wells. Good points about trade being a significant motivating factor, though.
