Ridiculous Statehood by frenchfriar Ridiculous Statehood by frenchfriar
This is an attempt to show what would happen if all of the proposed states had indeed achieved statehood. Several states have been added to the map, as best as I could find descriptions of their boundaries or following what maps I found.

I used images of maps no longer in copyright as base images, and expanded upon them and changed them to get this result.

This was not my final result, alas, it is the only image that I have currently on my new computer.

Once I retrieve the rest off my old hard drive, I will post more.

Also imagine if countries we treat like states actually became states, such as Israel or Russia.

I can see making a case for Israel... even for adding the UK as individual states.. (it was actually proposed as a solution to the war debt after ww2, the British were not amused).
I can't imagine adding all of Russia to the Union even in the most ardent Ameriwank scenario, I'm even thinking of letting them keep Russian America, and turning it into three states which later joined, Alyeska, Yukon, and Severnye Sklone (the Northern Slope), with the last being another Native Nation state, like Nunuvut. Possibly even a refuge state for Czarist Russia.
Basically, the concept is a Balkanised North America, where a bunch of smaller nations later reunify.

Otherwise, yeah, I think I'm going to push it for all I can, and see what I can get into a sequel.

I don't see the Cherokee petition for statehood before the period of Jackson's removal.

Nevermind. I see it. I think this is the first time I have ever seen an approximation of the Cherokee state on a map. What might have been.

This map has both: a remnant of the original Cherokee holdings, in brown, north of Alabama and Georgia, south of Franklin; and the state of Sequoyah, which was proposed 2 years ahead of the full state of Oklahoma, by forming what was then "Indian Territory" into a state by itself, which remained the basis for Oklahoma statehood for the full state later.
My thoughts on this map were to allow the Cherokee nation to remain, so no Trail of Tears, but have them also be instrumental in helping the fledgling state of Sequoyah to come into being. I'm having my cake and eating it.
(and by the way, my version of the Cherokee nation on the map was taken from borders on the Indian Cessions maps, something I highly recommend googling.)
