New United States Capital?
One reason the area now know as Washington D.C. was chosen to be the location of the national capital was because it was roughly the geographic center of the original thirteen states. If the United States had to relocate its capital using this rule today, where would it be? Three possible answers:
Throwing Alaska and Hawaii in the mix really changes things, Alaska in particular. Alaska pulls the geographic center so far north and so far west that the geographic center is not even in US territory. It is in British Columbia, Canada, near Prince George.
This Google Map pins all three candidates for new United States national capital.
One more thing: when will I learn and remember the difference between capital and capitol? Likely never.
