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.

One thing I just saw but Im not really sure about is, how did Mexico manage to take northern Colombia but not Guatemala and El Salvador???

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".

No, they are areas that are occupied by the Empire, but not yet fully incorporated into it.

Is Canada really that sensible a name for a nation which contains a lot more than what is historically Canadian, and is missing the vital chunk of Quebec. How about its a bit like Argentina, which has the official names of the Argentine Republic, Argentine Confederation, Nation of Argentina and the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata. Canada* could be known as the United Provinces of British America, the Dominion of Tupoba, and the Dominion of Efisga. The former is obvious in its provenance, the second is derived from the first, based on Tuponia (The United Provinces Of North AmerIca) and the last is an acronym for the primary nations that formed Canada OTL and more so ITTL, English, French, Irish, Scottish, German, Aboriginal.
Other than that, I find the map AMAZING!!!

Yes, the "history" behind this map, especially my lack of knowledge when I made this reguarding the Treaty of Ultrecht, caused issues with the whole Canada/Quebec/British North America business. At present, I've sort of given up on this series, as the whole foundation for the POD is just plain incorrect.

That said, I'm glad you like it, and I really appreciate the feedback, thanks!

Very nice. What the base map you're using? I've been looking for one including the longitude and latitude grid for ages!

I just wish the political maps were more detailed.

Thanks. But I'm not sure if a political map at that scale with a lot more details wouldn't be too cluttered.

Great re-imagining of the North American map =D Of course being Canadian and from Quebec, I like how much more South the Dominion of Canada reaches and that Quebec became its own Republic =p

One thing I would like to see, if you're open to the suggestion, is Newfoundland perhaps being a territory of Denmark like Greenland. They discovered Viking ruins there and Newfoundland didn't actually join Canada until 1949.

But that's just a minor suggestion, I still very much dig the map =D

But the Danes abandoned and forgot about Vinland pretty quickly, so it wouldn't make much sense, unless Denmark had a tremendous wave of Imperialism/Nationalism and decided to go retake some past territories.

Thank you, very much! I think that is a pretty neat idea, I never really considered that for this map. At present I'm not going to make any more modifications to this series of maps, as the alt hist I based it on sucks, and I didn't do enough research, mainly out of impatience lol.

the iroquois would be were you put huron, huron people were on the north side of the lakes

Its named for the lake, not the people. Iriquois is a good name though, I may change it to that or Algonquin.

algonquin is too far geographically (its more like... eastern quebec i guess), if you named it after the lake then that makes perfect sense :D thanks for answering! :D i love this map btw! XD

Thanks a lot! What I read had the Algonquin spread over a much larger area, but that may have been the language family rather than the people.

Why is the Province of Ohio bounded by the Mississippi, Arkansas, and Missouri rivers, without being near the Ohio river?
Reply
:iconspartan-127:
SPARTAN-127 Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2012
Because its border just got readjusted and hasn't been renamed yet. What would you suggest?

Missouri, maybe, after the river. Or Osage, for the Siouan tribe from that area, or even Arkansas.

Addendum: Cherokee City should probably remain as Kansas or something. I'm not sure how many Cherokee would have moved from Carolina to that area if there's no Indian Territory.

The USA didn't really change from its historical self politically until the late 1820s/30s.

How does that work? Even assuming Adams and Hamilton flee the Loyalist New England and New York, the Federalist Party probably don't do much, leaving the aristocratic parts of the south in charge. Is there a War of 1812? What about the Seminole Wars? The Trail of Tears mainly happens because of Jackson's actions as president; would he be elected if there were no wars for him to build a reputation on?
