A Map Of The United States...That Could've Been

Andrew Shears, certified cartography nerd, Mansfield University geography professor and the guy behind The United States of TV map we featured here on Neatorama a few years ago, created another map in 2011 that re-envisions the United States as it could've been if every state that ever tried to secede from the Union had succeeded.

50 states would have been turned into a whopping 124, and some states would have ended up with totally far out names like Trans-Pecos, Nova and Cascadia, and otherwise things would have probably turned out to be much the same as they are now.
