The Virginia that Never Was (But Really Kinda Is)

The U.S. That Never Was

The U.S. That Never Was

Andrew Shears, an Assistant Professor of Geography at Mansfield University in Mansfield, Pennsylvania, used what seems to be a copious amount of free time to create this most interesting map of what the United States could have become.  Armed with Wikipedia and an active imagination, he’s changed all of the current territorial divides leading to a map of 124 individual states.  Knowing Virginia and it’s political and cultural divides, I’d say that he at least got our state correct.

Since he first posted his creation, he’s also published posts about how he used a timeline of U.S. history and a GIS to create the map.
