The map at the top of the page shows that New Albion has a smaller area than the North American map of 2000. I assume that the former is the propper one. --Sikulu 13:46, 22 March 2006 (UTC)
Actually, sorry, but no. The north america map is correct. When I made the original, I didn't know the size of British Columbia in Relation to the Western U.S. Also note that Colorado and New Mexico are missing.
I drew a new, correct map. --cymra37
Alaska and Hawaii parts of the US?
Why do Alaska and Hawaii belong to the US if they don't have territories at the Pacific? How did Alaska come to the US *there* and if it's the OTL way, why should the US buy Alaska from Russia? Why not Canada or New Albion? OK, *here* has been some Tsarist anti-British sentiment, but ain't Alaska and Hawaii worthless with no direct access to the ATL US only bordering the Atlantic? Dr. Nodelescu 12:17, 20 April 2006 (UTC)
Although the answer appears ambiguous now, the answer lies in the Mexican War in ATL. Both the UK and US were occupying the Southwest, but the UK maintained its claim, citing that they had occupied South California during the Anglo-Californian War. A compromise was made:
- Both Countries would cede part of their land to form a new Texas.
- Both countries would pay federal subsidies for the construction of Transcons.
Another point is that the U.S' pacific holdings were occupied colonies, and that many countries have colonized remote lands (before the Panama or Suez canals, India was cut of from Britain by Africa and South America!)
Why do towns have spanish names?
If the area was only occupied by the Spanish for a year how come most of the towns and cities have Spanish names? In reality the area was part of spain for a long time, surely if this area was English colonised and ruled they would have English names like the towns and cities on the east coast?--Smoggy80 17:07, May 9, 2011 (UTC)
