    That first one is great, especially because of its size. Also shows a good image of the Argentine-Brazilian border dispute, though I'm pretty sure it should be a bit longer.

    Here's my take on Paraguayan annexation, with borders and claims at the time.

    I think the Paraguayan territories inhabited by indigenous peoples would be incoroporated into the Chaco Territory of Argentina, and Misiones would be returned to Corrientes Province. I don't know the exact details of the annexation though.

    After the end of the Civil War, when the Confederacy was reabsorbed into the Union, the county of Van Zandt in Texas wasn't down with the idea and so declared independence as the Free State of Van Zandt in 1867. They even wrote up their own declaration of independence on top of it. The U.S. sent in a cavalry unit to deal with them...only to be stopped by the dense woods of the region and pushed back by the Van Zandt forces. Feeling victorious, the Van Zandt forces then celebrated by getting absolutely plastered.

    When the Americans came back, they surrounded the drunk men and arrested them. The prisoners later escaped and were never recaptured or went to trial. Their declaration of independence was also never repealed, so the Free State of Van Zandt still technically exists.

    Thing is, all other disputed areas depicted have roughly well defined borders. It's not like Macedonia as a territorial concept didn't have such, but it seem they went with "oh, well, just color the border instead".

    It's...quite insane.
    Of course, seeing the text, it makes sorta sense.

    UNITED STATES
    Of the Great Continent
    (Europe, Asia, Africa)
    First Alliance of Peoples with the French Republic
    Division of the West of the Great Continent based on all the seven perspectives, ethnographic, linguistic, geographic, administrative, commercial political and moral
    BY THE PROPHET C.M.​

    1885 : A great disaster will strike England
    1885 : Reconstitued French Republic, Italian Republic, Spanish Republic, Hungarian Republic
    1886 : North Germany Republic, Polish Republic
    1887 : South German Republic, Greek Republic

    Morroco as a Spanish Colony, Tripoli as an Italian Colony.

    Note the existence of a separate Little Russia,

    Francowank, Polonowank, Magyarowank, Serbowank and Hellenowank at the same time? Impressive.

    Of course the best part is that the only thing the author is wishing for England is a distaster :p.

    It doesn't strike me as a true proposal, Argentina did want to simply erase Paraguay from the map, but AFAIK it was only wishful thinking. I personally never saw such a map and I have some comments to make:

    - There was no de facto border between Bolivia and Paraguay, that's OTL border established after the Chaco War in the 1930's.
    - Why is Bolivia even involved? Back in 1860's ALL Chaco (including a good part of Argentina, Paraguay and Bolivia) was virtually uninhabited.
    - The Brazilian Army occupied Asuncion for ten years after the war, they wouldn't let Argentina have it.

    How often do people come together to repeal a Declaration of Independence they personally made?
