The only movement to result in a border being removed, rather than a new one created?

Well, to be accurate, the border would just be moved to the sea, rather than the middle of a landmass. But, yeah, still valid.

The Chief in the North Island looks about right - not sure what the guy in the South Island is supposed to be.

What is cool about that map is that I was stupidly surprised they had maps like that back then and that Japan had them - am I both era-ist and racist?

Is there really a successionist movement in Devon and Somerset?

So much racism in that Japanese map. :lol:
Probably not surprising considering the jingoism and attitudes at the time.

First intrigued, then disappointed as apparently Copenhagen doesn't have a flag, and definitely not a solid black one.

You will like this Zappa. That is actually a strawberry tree or known as an Irish or Killarney strawberry tree as it grows there still. One of the ancient Irish trees and I bought one for my mammies back field.

Yankeedom as defined in the map would pretty much end at the Pennsylvania-New York State border. It doesn't include Erie, Michigan, and certainly not Chicago, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. The Midlands should be greatly enlarged, and I'm not sure how a person decides they go from southern New Jersey to far northern Texas.

While New York City can be its own little world, ditch New Netherlands, it's part of Yankeedom.

Deep South goes too far down into Florida. You could make a case it stops at the Panhandle.

New France - New Orleans doesn't really exist anymore outside of tourism purposes. It's Deep South.

Deep South itself is too large. There's no obvious dividing line but the upper south and Gulf States South are generally divided somehow.

The person that drew the lines making the Greater Appalachia territory is a f**king idiot. Actually going into New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, really?

The Navajo Reservation (northwest New Mexico) would never be included in El Norte.

Not much to complain about out west though.

Waldseemuller - 1507

Image

Quote:
On this map, these coasts continued until they outlined whole continents and defined another ocean, what we now call the Pacific. And on one of the continents, he wrote a proposed name for the place—America. Waldseemüller was the first European cartographer to imagine North and South America as separate continents, the first to create a full 360-degree view of the world that included the Pacific Ocean, and the first to use the name “America” to label any part of the world.
