U.S. square area[edit]

There has been a discussion at Talk:United States#Area in square miles —sorry, in a wall of three sections — whether to use the U.S. Census Bureau “State and other areas” which uses the MAF/TIGER database, shared by the USGS and Homeland Security. The first box on the first line reports 3,805,927 sq.mi. for the 50 states, DC, Puerto Rico, and "Island Areas”. Some editors would like to see the figure of “50 states and DC” alone, which is available in a sub-chart.

In trying to find a resolution, I proposed a “Poll for two alternatives”, for reporting the total U.S. area in the info box.

  • A. Report area including territories, footnote 50 states and DC area.
  • B. Report 50 states and DC area, footnote area including territories.

The results are two A., three B, although one of the Bs says either way, and one of the Bs may be saying no footnote. Any comments are welcome. TheVirginiaHistorian (talk) 12:54, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

Admission to the Union[edit]

Admission to the Union now has these sections:

1 The process of admission
2 Formation of states within the boundaries of existing states
3 Anticipated admission of new states under the Articles of Confederation
4 See also
5 Notes and references

There's still an immense amount on law and politics and history that is not there. Michael Hardy (talk) 02:07, 14 November 2014 (UTC)
