The North American Continent in 1928 A.D. v2 by SPARTAN-127 The North American Continent in 1928 A.D. v2 by SPARTAN-127
So I decided to alter the borders on north america, since on the orignal many of them use state lines from our history, which doesn't make much sense. Also, I was actually not even finished making them when I got bored and started colouring, so by the time that was done I just figured posting was a good idea.

In addition, I have made the Lakota Territory much bigger, and as such there are a few more major cities within. The idea is that the territory is a self governing protectorate that garuantees citizenship for Aboriginal people's. As such the city names within should reflect that, but I can't find any good ones, with the exception of Yooto, which is a name for Santa Fe.
If anyone knows or can think of any names for theses cities I would be very grateful. At current I have simply named each for a tribe that lived in the vacinity.

I have several questions:
1. How does Canada have all of that land? They could have gotten it from France at the end of the French and Indian War, but that wouldn't really explain why there is a state (or country I suppose?)named Louisiana if the US never purchased it.
2. How did Russia get Alaska back? Did the US never buy it in 1867? Or did they reconquer it?
3. Why have you renamed my beloved Minnesota Mississippi? (just because the river originates there?)
Minneapolis's name is derived from the name Minnesota, isn't it?
Sorry if it bothers you, but I always look at alternate history maps and say "what the hell happened?"

Minneapolis is named for Minnehaha, the name of a small river and/or a waterfall on that river, I forget which. (Visited there in 1992...) minne means 'water' in all these names.

It doesn't bother me. The main thing that happened is that I didn't plan this alt hist.

1. Most of it was retianed by Britain after a less successful Revolutionary War. The rest was acquired during the Napoleonic wars and some kind of Anglo-Mexican war.

2. They never sold it, or at least couldn't find a buyer. The US, or its equivalent had already disolved in a series of civil wars.

3. Yes and that didn't even cross my mind lol

I'm sort of glad people pick my first maps apart, because it makes me keep up with the timeline more on my new ones.

There was a ceasefire or something and they managed to secure membership to the EUSA, Colombia had been a holdout, Mexico took advantage, the remainder signed a truce and joined as well.

Okay cuz I thought that those gray lines meant something like "State of war" or "disputed" or "Unrecognized".
