    I expect Baja California would have been a territory through to the 20th century. Arizona would have a coastline (albeit a largely unusable one). South of the Rio Grande in the east, you might have a Rio Grande state, modelled after the Republic of the Rio Grande.

    That’s a good question. As some were upset at the size of Texas at the time, I could see it being its own state (sort of a rump Rio Grande Republic, in that it’s a republican government and would probably be called Rio Grande). More interesting is whether they’d go ahead with the plan to split California (including Baja, of course), because everyone was upset at how big it was OTL.

    That's pretty interesting. I wonder in such a scenario if rather than add Nevada as a state, Utah would keep its western territory, Arizona would keep Las Vegas, and California would just get the rest.

    Call it Polk. Hell, if not for the traitor Nicolas Trist violating Congress’ and the President’s orders for the southern border at Guadeloupe-Hidalgo, there wouldn’t have been a need for a Gadsden Purchase in the first place.

    I also remember seeing a scan of the original map used to determine the new southern border. Finding it again would be an absolute pain… Anyway, it was accompanied by some historic text and a record of the proceedings. What I do remember is that it said, “Sam Houston’s first action was to lay a ruler just south of Tampico and draw a line directly across the continent.” And I think that’s just great.

    Seems odd that the former Far East Republic isn’t a separatist movement, as it’s cut off from the rest of Russia almost perfectly by its old borders.
