Does anyone have a definitive list of such proposals, of varying levels of seriousness, from the last ten or fifteen years?
Unsurprisingly, it's very similar.
Possibly due to being part of the Smithsonian in administrative terms and/or being a literally-national convention center? I figure they want as much 'national' stuff clustered together in the city for this federal enclave.It now includes the Kennedy Center for reasons I don't quite understand.
So, instead of being called Washington, D.C., it would be called Washington, DC.I assume in utter seriousness while the "state" name is Douglass Commonwealth, the "city" name is still to be Washington in every day terminology even if the City of Washington was officially entirely absorbed into DC (be it the District of Columbia or Douglass Commonwealth).
Nominally anything easier to write out is always a plus for me in place names! Even if it's, uh, literal periods being deleted.So, instead of being called Washington, D.C., it would be called Washington, DC.
Agreed. Perhaps we can bring the thread back on track by looking at other proposals?
That's certainly a bit of a unique one, given as the claimed parts of Kenya hadn't been part of Uganda since 1902!I don't recall if this one was ever mapped in this thread before, but in the 1970s Idi Amin had advanced a claim on what is now western Kenya and parts of what is now South Sudan claiming it should revert to being Ugandan as a result of mistakes made by the British in transferring these districts to Kenya and Sudan
That’s just the map for the Louisiana Purchase, long before anything further west was settled to any large extent. Switch over to the Mexican-American War map. Sam Houston’s proposal is the rightful border. Damn Trist.Interesting how all of them leave out California and New Mexico
Which probably would've happened immediately after the Russians waved the white flag, however that happens. No way Prussia was going to allow a upstart Polish state to potentially inspire rebellion in Prussian Poland.I suspect their thinking was something along the lines of "that's for the next war".
