Could someone create a story only or threadmark? And a map of north America?
SuperZtar64, this is is awesome. You are awesome. This was a lot of work to do on behalf of my little project, and I can't find a single fault with it.I tried my hand at making a map of North America in the early 1830's, using the best of my historical knowledge coupled with the prose. I tried following the info from the prose and Lycaon's maps as best they could unless they didn't reflect reality. Some parts of this map are hard to find info on both OTL and ATL, and are thus pure speculation on my part as to borders and control.
This map is not canon and I do not intend to imply it is so, it is purely my own idea of the borders.

- The southern area of the border of Russian Alaska doesn't really look like that. The area wasn't exactly defined and was disputed until the early 1900s, but the modern day border is close enough to a midway point.
- The entirety of Labrador is disputed between the colonies of Newfoundland and Quebec. That red border is pretty much meaningless.
- The status of present-day British Columbia and Washington beyond "under British control" perplexed me. With no joint occupation of the Oregon Country, I imagined at some point they just gave a chunk of it to the Hudson's Bay Company, the boundaries of which I abstractly chose as the Columbia River drainage basin border and I just followed some rivers down to the Pacific.
Other than these speculative areas, the map should be more or less wholly authentic to the prose. I'm still not satisfied with the Maine border but whatever, this took me ten hours to make.

I've been kind of swamped with real-life work, but I will be threadmarking it within the next few days.
(That squiggly bit of the U.S./New Spain border between the straight latitude lines is the Continental Divide, if anybody's wondering.)
